120 years ago August Ernst founded his distillery to produce two great lines – KORN and KÜMMEL. OLDESLOER KORN is still produced today and its 40+ prizes and medals are thanks to the “Oldesloer Purity Law” ingredients – wind, water and wheat! OLDESLOER KÜMMEL was a resurrection of an ancient Schnapps made from caraway seeds which are the oldest spice in Europe.
The Specht range of Schnapps are testament to Germany’s deep roots in this very European tradition. Their popularity amongst locals says it all.
This respect for simple tradition is coupled with innovative moves to address a changing market. Oldesloer’s line of fruity Schnapps are a great way to introduce “newbies” to the world of Schnapps and the Korn-Cola cans have reached cult status in Germany.
