Josef is an organic farmer as well as a passionate organic distiller. His experimentation and creativity continuously result in new, unusual products. In 2015 his O-Gin was awarded gold at the Craft Spirits Awards. Thanks to an initiative of Oliver Ebert he’s developing a coffee spirit in cooperation with coffee pioneer Ralf Rüller of “The Barn”. Furthermore, Freimeisterkollektiv will benefit from Josef’s expertise in the area of vodka: he has also committed himself to create a vodka specifically for the Freimeisterkollektiv.
