Quöllfrisch Dunkel

A balanced, malty and full-flavoured beer with an exquisite roasty aroma from our small part of the world. Where we come from, we still take our time for things that have already been lost elsewhere – such as a dark beer brewed from choice ingredients and natural Alpstein spring water.

Back in the 1990s, Karl Locher, owner of Brauerei Locher in Appenzell, wondered whether it would be possible to tap into the hidden aromas and beer extracts buried in his ancestors’ old beer kegs. In 1999 he started producing Appenzeller Säntis Malt, which made him one of the first whisky distillers in Switzerland. Locher’s idea to make use of his innovative brewmaster’s competence for the production of special wort as a basis for this whisky and to use the family-owned distillery eventually led to an exceptional new product, which has been continuously refined over the years.
