Säntis Kristall Spezial

A full-bodied, hoppy special beer. Brewed with malted barley carrying the original power of the Bündner mountains, select aromatic hops from Stammheim and Hallertau and natural Alpstein spring water. A perfect balance of malt and hop flavours creates a fruity, slightly citrusy palate.

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.
