    Distilled 2000

    Bottled 2014

    Sansibar Whisky is an independent bottler. It was in 2012 when the company commenced their business and initially they were eyed with critical distrust. However, single-cask bottlings with the logo of Germany’s most famous beach restaurant have won a large community of devoted fans within a very short time.

    Sansibar Whisky is actually the brainchild of Carsten Ehrlich, the organizer of the Whisky Fair Limburg and Jens Drewitz. Eric Huang of Spirits Shop Selection and Jens have been friends for a very long time, and they’ve had many a dram together in all these years. Eventually, while sitting over some drinks, they had the idea to create a combination of dine, wine and whisky.

    Sansibar Restaurant on the isle of Sylt was their first choice, because that’s just a top brand. But of course the people at Sansibar hadn’t been waiting for Jens and Carsten. It took three years before they could convince the owner of Sansibar. At first, everyone had different ideas on how the business should be run. Finally, we agreed that they search and purchase the barrels, then bottle the whisky under the label of Sansibar and make these bottles available at the restaurant.

    Sansibar is a trademark that belongs to Herbert Seckler, the owner of Sansibar Restaurant. Sansibar Whisky is an independent company.

    There is good reason for such a success: the people behind the company are old hands in the whisky business.
