WOB Destillerie Wolfram Ortner: 30 years of evergreen distillates

‘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 ‘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.

Over the decades, the pursuit of perfection led to an exceptional product portfolio: coffee and cigar distillates, essences, Parfum de Vie, Mariage (a blend of Nock-Land whisky and fruit distillates), WOB shots such as Sin:it or Lav:it (concentrated, alcohol-based aromas, for long drinks or to enjoy neat – only a few drops are enough for a taste sensation), WOB 24 Karat (a powerful fruity and woody composition), WOBka (a vodka with a distinctive Nock-Land profile), and aquavit from the range of WOB medicinals as an homage to Nordic lifestyle.

An outstanding product is the ‘Fire & Ice’ London Dry Gin, which was exposed to the natural elements in a tank to specially mature for three years. And because gin has been so trendy in recent years, in Ortner’s fragrance and taste forge, a fascinating, fresh perfume has been created which reflects all the aromatic nuances of its drinkable relatives in a New Western Style.

At the World Spirits Award, there was double gold for Venti Anni 1997 (Spirit of the Year & World Spirits Award 2019), and gold for KGB Kräuter-Gewürz Bitter and WOB Absinthe – Abs.in.
