Slyrs Distillery Visit: All Pictures

by Oliver Klimek on April 16, 2010

I tried hard to include as many pictures as possible in my report of yesterday’s visit to Slyrs distillery in Schliersee. But the Worpress blog system – or the included editor, to be more specific – has serious problems integrating captioned pictures without disrupting text flow.

So I decided to collect all pictures I took in this post without further comments.

If you are interested in German whisky, have a look at the Facebook page Whisky – Made in Germany

The shop in the visitors centre

The spirit still behind a glass cage

The spirit receiver

The two wash stills with their condensers

Wash still No. 2

The low wines receiver

Fancy manhole on one of the wash stills. The temperature of 95°C indicates that distillation is near the end.

Stainless steel mashtun

Some serious mashing going on

Basin for taking samples of wort or wash

Stainless steel fermentation tanks

The stillwoman checking the status of fermentation

One of two malt silos

600 casks in the warehouse

A closer look at the casks

The supplier of the casks

One of the older casks in the first row, most probably holding the "12yo in making"


The newest cask in the wharehouse. Where are the others?

We have that problem with the wordpress text editor too – but don’t worry as the photos are excellent. We’ve followed the Slyrs distillery for a couple of years now but haven’t managed to visit ourselves. Your photos are the next best thing.
