When it comes to the quality of the spirits bottled by WOB Distillerie Wolfram Ortner in the "crisis year" of 2021, they are products across the board that truly deserve to be called "valuable."
Ortner started the distillery and barrique aging in 1989 and has perfected the skills over the past 31 years. The result is products of various categories - from rum to brandy to the classic plum distillate. And each reflects the signature and decades of experience of the master distiller.
‘Handmade goods for finer living’ is a widely recognised slogan amongst those who enjoy the finer things in life: high-quality, handcrafted products are made at Wolfram Ortner’s distillery and coffee company in the Carinthian Nock-Land region. The products are available in the WOB shop there or online (www.wob.at). The ‘World Spirits’ brand has also been making waves, and its inclusive concept has certainly contributed to the improvement of international spirit culture. The latest additions are ‘World Spirits Tasting Videos’ for TV stations and YouTube.
The rum boom started in the year 2016 at the WOB Distillery, namely with a white and a blond Light Rum. Altogether six different barrels were produced in the first year, depending on the stylistics of the fermentation and distillation.
Since July 2016 the products have been stored predominantly in Limousin oak barrels. Two barrels each of CS (Cask Strength with approx. 57% vol.) and PR (PR (Premium Rum with approx. 41% vol) will still come on the market in 2020, followed by a PR (Double Matured) in 2022. The friends of rum can already look forward to the following 2020 editions and naturally buy them online via the shop www.wob.at .

Wolfram Ortner is not only known for his spirits – insiders also appreciate his artworks, be they paintings, sculptures or installations. The limited T-shirt series with select works of art is new – each year three artworks adorn the premium T-shirts which are available in the sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL and even 4XL. Aprons, bottle openers and writing utensils for friends of a sophisticated lifestyle are at choice at the shop or online.
Gin and tonic is known and loved by everyone as an aperitif - as a refreshing drink and mood enhancer for the mature youth with taste.
The WOB Gi:in is a classic London Dry Gin with World-Spirits gold glitter - in a duet, of course, it needs a suitable partner from the tonic faction, and there are several of them.
a year that was anything but an ordinary one is coming to an end. For many it was a threat – healthwise or economically.
Currently, life is damn tough. Admittedly, we can’t „sweeten“ it but we can shapen it a bit more „spiritual“.
And fortunately we still have such endearing and livable constants such as Christmas and New Year.
The „Nock-Land-Scape“ appears presently as a winter wonderland under a deep blue sky.
The gin flood during the last five years also triggered an enormous tonic wave where parallels to the different gin directions can be found. They could be regarded as the true companion of a New Western Style Gin or London Dry Gin. The quality of the products is also reflected as usual in the price - based loosely on the motto: „Whatever is cheap in not worth anything!“.
This development was reason enough for Wolfram Ortner to develop a gin tonic syrup. The idea behind it: a herb syrup with citrus and quinine which forms a perfect harmony with a London Dry Gin in a dilution of 1:7 or 1:8 respectively. This way pleasure without any rough edges is guaranteed!
In 1989 the whole fun started – the objective was to produce perfect distillates, set trends and leave milestones as recognisable WOB traces behind through innovation.
The story is widely known: distillates, drugs, coffee and cigar distillates, essences, Parfum de Vie etc. on the one hand – a creative realm of fascinating edgy glass design to the perfect ‚Café dö WOB’ on the other hand. The Ortner DNA is apparent in every single product – and concerning perfumes for example, also smellable.
„You can’t buy courage“ – but the brand new WOB Vermouth by Wolfram Ortner, however, as of now. But what is behind V20?
You do need a little courage: the colour of the unfiltered Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains is rather unusual ... but after the first swallow the impression will certainly change into fascination!
But one thing after the other:the letter „V“ stands for vermouth – the international designation for vermouth - and the figure 20 for the alcohol content as well as the used botanicals. The basic wine is a Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains with a slight yeast note - also known as „Sur Lie“.
Although the VERMOUTH DÖ WOB has only got 20 percent by volume, no sugar was added. And the basic wine was also aged bone-dry.
Sensory profile: daring interpretation of a classic vermouth. However with a lot of imagination and sure instinct. An exceptional aperitif on a Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains basis with a floral character and subtle herb and spice bouquet.
Are you brave enough to get addicted? Then you can purchase the V20 at www.wob.at or at our shop in Nock-Land!
