Uncompromising in terms of quality

Our home is a part of us – just as we are a part of it. That’s why it is important to us to preserve rural structures and maintain the local landscape. We support our regional partners and work with them to strengthen our region.

Five decades of success

The BIMMERLE PRIVATE DISTILLERY is the life’s work of company founder Günter Bimmerle. As a trained cooper and passionate Black Forest native, he discovered the diverse possibilities of our local fruit early on.

To this day, they form the foundation of our work. And to this day our aim is to create a wide variety of products that delight the palate and capture hearts.
