After completing his education in Alberndorf and Gallneukirchen, Peter had worked in field sales for a renowned company in Linz. His parent´s farm has distilling rights and once a year a fruit was refined and became a family event. Since childhood, Peter was fascinated by this process and discovered the diversity and passion for excellent spirits. In 2005, at the age of 18, Peter tried to bring his own grain in its purest form and that´s ultimately the Whiskey. It was successful and so kindled the dream of owning a whiskey distillery.
