In Germany one can find a plethora of small craft distilleries, each of them producing fruit and grain distillates. The Malt Whisky Yearbook 2017 counts 38 distilleries in total. The oldest one among them is Scraml in Erbendorf, founded in 1818. Since whisky has grown in popularity, many among them want to take a share, even a small one. Almost all whisky distilled in Germany is consumed locally. Some brands include Blaue Maus from Egolsheim, Slyrs from Schliersee, Finch from Nellingen and Liebl from Bad Kötzting.
