Inner courtyard

Step back in time

Welcome to the Echter Nordhäuser traditional distillery! Can you feel the special atmosphere permeating the courtyard here between the walls of our listed Art Nouveau buildings? The ancient spirit casks, architectural curiosities and inscriptions take us back to a time when the small transport casks were lined up here, ready for shipping.

Let the past work its magic on you - it looks the same here today as it did a hundred years ago in 1908, when Joseph Seidel built a new home for his father's old Korn distillery in Grimmelallee.

Some of the exhibits on show in the rooms at the distillery are much older even than the buildings. After all, Nordhausen can look back on more than 500 years of distilling tradition. But see for yourself…
