Bimmerle: Know-how meets regionality and trend awareness
At the production location in the Black Forest town of Sasbach, which was opened in 2015, the family business sets innovative standards in technology, sustainability and environmental protection. For the last five decades, Bimmerle has strived for the highest quality, with targeted know-how, modern high-tech and the traditional art of distilling. This is the first distillery in Germany where all their heating requirements and power generation are covered by the burning of fruit stones combined with woodchips from the region.
In Germany and on the European market, Bimmerle is a leader in the fruit brandies sector with the Lörch brand, as ‘evergreens’ are currently enjoying a renaissance and have reclaimed a place in the restaurant and bar scene. Needle Black Forest Gin is among the top 5 most widely sold gins in Germany. The portfolio has been expanded since 2018 with Wood Stork Spiced Rum and the EVERMANN Black Forest whiskies Theo & Wilhelm introduced in 2022.
