Rogg star

An exotic and a traditional type of grain.

The first finds date back to the Bronze Age.
Rye has long been valued by people, in the Bavarian abbeys aromatic beer and bread were made from it, and it is even more widespread in Eastern Europe.

It was considered an old-fashioned grain and was displaced by other varieties, but it is one of the “hidden champions” of the future.
Rye is an idiosyncratic species and not easy to grow, but also all the more resilient in times of climate change.

We are a community of individual characters, addicted to the flavors of life.

Our vision is to create a brand that carries values and roots from the past into the present.

To combine different characters and properties and to unite them into a whole.
That is why all our decisions, our work steps and actions are connected from the beginning to the end.

The heart of our distillery. Penny Lane.
