Whiskey distillery J. Haider began distilling in 1995 and presented its first whiskey three years later: Waldviertler Whiskey J.H. was also the first whiskey in Austria. The distillery’s assortment includes rye and rye malt whiskeys as well as single malts made from pure barley malt. In a global comparison, Austria is still ahead of the USA in the production of rye, and the Haider family is concentrating on this competence of rye whiskey right from the start. This experience is the basis of our DARK RYE 608.
