... when Gottfried Roner started distilling and set up a still in his parents' house. Distillation is an ancient art whose roots are in the mysterious magic of alchemy and which has a long tradition in the Alpine region.
After the early successes with the production of grappa, Gottfried, who was passionate about his land and its fruits, decided to expand his production: by macerating roots and berries from the surrounding forests, as was already the tradition, he produced traditional products such as gentian, juniper and blueberry liqueur. These products are still among the most popular liqueurs from our distillery.
With the purchase of a second still, the company founder further diversified the production and began to distill fruit, as traditionally done in Central Europe. The excellent quality of apples and pears and the natural talent of Gottfried, laid the foundation for the still existing unique quality of fruit distillates from the distillery Roner.
