The Whisky Trek will undoubtedly set the pulse racing of any whisky collector or connoisseur. In fact, you can now upgrade a hike in beautiful surroundings or multiple tours in the Alpstein by adding that something extra for whisky lovers.
Every mountain inn has a store of its own, special and individual whisky so they can certainly offer visitors something unique. That’s another reason why many hosts of mountain inns (cask keepers)are inventive when it comes to storing their whiskies. A chance to see the casks is an experience in itself (in some cases this is only available by request).
Also available to take home
The own-brew whisky is available by the glass. Visitors can purchase 10 cl bottles signed by the cask keeper to take home with them. But why such a small size bottle?
Sample and collect
To ensure that the exclusivity of the various whiskies is preserved you can only buy the 10 cl bottles in the respective mountain inn. If you’d like to sample and collect several whiskys, you’d be best buying one of the voucher booklets available at all mountain restaurants, the Brauquöll visitor centre and in the online shop.
Whisky lovers who like to collect in stages can opt for the smaller 9-whisky tour for 150 and the 8-whisky tour for 135 francs. Voucher booklet in hand, you can collect Säntis malts at nine or eight mountain restaurants of your choice. You can also pick up the elegant collector’s frame at Brauquöll. It’s an ideal way of displaying the precious spirits. Whisky trekkers with lots of stamina can opt directly for the TREK 2 finisher tour, costing 390 francs. Everyone who tracks down all 26 Säntis malts will receive the corresponding finisher trophy on submitting their vouchers.
Note: The collector’s frame and finisher trophy are only available in
Brauquöll (map no. 26).
With this in mind, we wish you an enjoyable time that engages all your senses in Alpstein where the whisky is matured in such a unique way that can only be achieved in a wonderful environment.
