Our Story


The story of Langatun began in 1859 when Jakob Baumberger took over the Mumenthaler-Marti brewery in Langenthal and began distilling liquors & whiskeys using a simple philosophy on choosing the soft waters around Langenthal & high quality malt barley.  


Today the production process is one of LANGATUN Distillery AG’s best-kept secrets because it is crucial in determining the quality of the different Langatun whiskies. The secret recipes and processes are revealed to only a few select people. During the pot still process, the raw materials are heated in copper stills and the precious spirit slowly and carefully drawn from them in a specially developed process.

This gives Langatun whisky its inimitably soft, complex and delicate character and winning awards all around the worlds.
