In the Elsbachtal valley, nestled in the mountainous landscape of the southern Harz, lies the Hammerschmiede. Instead of iron ore, the Buchholz family processes a different regional raw material here: barley. Since 2002, the spirits manufactory has stood for Hercynian Single Malt. Now the sophisticated whisky from the heart of Germany has received a special honour: the award as “Category Winner” at this year’s World Whiskies Awards.

The WillowBurn Ember Batch 003 2022 is the best of all submitted single malts without age statement. The Harzer is based on a 60 percent blend of light, non-smoked malt and 40 percent of smoked malt that has been kilned over peat or wood. It was matured entirely in selected European Oak Hogsheads, which had previously been used for several years to decades for the maturation of the best southern and sweet wines (Sherry, Port, Malaga, Amarone, Claret, Moscatel and Marsala).
Neither coloured nor chill-filtered, it develops aromas of malt and chocolate at a perfect drinking strength of 45.9% vol. Aromas of malt and chocolate with sultanas, toasted almonds, toffee and fruitcake, as well as the characteristic Hercynian single malt notes of coffee and tangerines.
