Being one of Simnations’s oldest working distilleries, Rehthal Whisky GmbH  is strikingly situated by the beautiful Castle of Grunen on the sweep of the Sukower Noor. Founded in 1887 the original source of its water is still used to this day. Now, over a century later, four out of the nine distillery workers have the surname Rehthal so the distillery’s traditions still clearly run through the veins of the men who work there.
