We are here for you! - Farthofer Distillery

We are here for you!

Quiet Mostviertel, bare pear trees and colourful leaves: while restaurants, schools and shops have to keep closed with the latest trends of the autumn-winter season, staying at home is the order of the day.

Our Mostelleria with guided tours and tastings is also affected and our cellar house therefore opens the doors temporarily exclusively for the sale of the farm.

Opening hours for farm sale

Wednesday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

We look forward to welcoming you again in person soon!

Now new! Premium spirits from old bread

For more than 125 years, the
bakery Aschauer
has traditionally baked in the 5th generation. Since baked goods have a very short lifespan, Moritz Aschauer focused on the development of an upcycling concept for excess bread.

We present our high-bristrious trio: BROTKA, BROTGINSKY and BROTUZO.

A clear thing … 100 organic

Passionate and with a lot of dedication we, Doris and Josef Farthofer, run our organic distillery in Öhling near Amstetten. Already in the fifth generation Josef Farthofer distills high-quality fruit schnapps and fires. Josef thought and worked organicly at a time when the supermarket had more or less the first organic parades and only a few organic wines on the market; In the spirits sector, organic raw materials are still a rarity today. With an assortment of around 50 organic fires, liqueurs and spirits, our distillery is one of Europe’s most comprehensive organic spirits suppliers. It is important to us to deal responsibly with nature’s resources. It is possible to gain a market advantage in smaller companies through holistic action, to work meaningfully and to contribute to sustainable development among employees, suppliers and in one’s own family. In our company, not only the raw materials are organic, but also everywhere else we use recycled or sustainable materials. And you taste this uncompromisingness. We invite you to take your time. Enjoy our natural and gently produced spirits consciously and with pleasure.

Table Cover You

Fairytale individual!

Finally taste as I want it: On demand, the little table does not cover itself, as in the fairy tale of the Brothers Grimm – but with only 3 clicks you have put together your very individual tasting in the Mostelleria.

Table little one deck you! works like a simple board game. On the three fields “With whom?”, “Tasting” and “Food” one places a lid of your choice. This is how easy it is to put together your own personal tasting.

Do you want to cover your personal table now or make someone else happy with a voucher?

Our own malting

Historically, breweries and whisky distilleries have always been self-deprecation. But the increasing industrialization in the middle of the 19th century separated the production of malt, beer and distillates.

Today, only a few large distilleries operate their own malting plant, and the grain germination has become a detached, independent trade. Farthofer’s malt drum has a capacity of two tons, which is small. But depending on the type of grain, the Mostviertler also makes only a total of 300 and 5000 bottles of whisky.
