About

This is a whisky knowledge/experience centre at the newly renovated 1200s castle Burg Scharfenstein. It is run by the nearby distillery Number Nine Spirituosenmanufaktur GmbH and also serves as a shop for their products.

The centre features a cinema, where short films about the distillery and the castle's history are shown. Furthermore, every step in whisky production is explained in text, accompanied by exhibits of things like a (operating) pot still, different grains and malts for touching and smelling, real casks of different woods and sizes etc.

The castle also features a restaurant, fast food place and hotel.

The centre offers guided tours, and parking is free and easily available 100 m from the entrance.

    Amazing place. For the price of 6 eur we entered the exhibition and cinema. In the cinema two films were shown. One was about No9 Spirituosenmanufaktur and one was about the castle's history and the renovations.

    In the shop, a very competent lady let me taste a few of the Nine Springs bottlings, and they were amazing! I bought 3 bottles, and she gave me a few extra things for free. Amazing service! Very friendly and competent staff, with whom you could actually have a reasonable talk about whisky.

    The 0,5L bottles cost 26 EUR for a (extremely delicious) rye and about 40-55 EUR for single malts which is not expensive at all for the quality. Other products like liqueur and brandies are also sold.


    A high recommend from me!!!
