The Langatun Heritage Line is a tribute to the traditions and the art of brewing and distilling of the Baumberger family. Almost 150 years later, we continue Jakob Baumberger's vision and still use the original and excellent Langenthal spring water.
The whole line represents the great value of unspoiled nature, which we celebrate with every drop of our premium handcrafted "Langatun" single malt whisky.
LANGATUN OLD DEER
SINGLE MALT WHISKY
Langatun Whisky "Old Deer" is produced from 100% pure barley malt.

These exceptionally sweet accents can also be found in the finished product.

LANGATUN OLD CROW
SINGLE MALT WHISKY
Langatun Old Crow is the newest baby in the Langatun family. It is a smoky, peaty whiskey. The gestalt malt of this single malt whiskey is specially smoked with peat. This means that during the malting process, the barley is dried with smoke from burnt peat, which absorbs the smoke aroma, which then gives the finished whiskey its wonderful smokiness. Langatun Old Crow is one of the first whiskies in Switzerland - indeed, one of the first whiskies in mainland Europe - to be produced using this process. The Langatun "Old Crow" shows itself with a beautiful color of amber and reddish nuances. A delight for lovers of fine peaty and smoky whiskies.
Aroma: Sweet smoke and tobacco notes.
Taste: Smoky, salty caramel, sweet smoke, a hint of red wine.
Finish: Warming, sweet smoke of tobacco & dark chocolate and peanut butter.
LANGATUN OLD WOLF
SINGLE MALT WHISKY - SMOKY WHISKY
Langatun Old Wolf is the second peat-smoked single malt whiskey of the Langatun family. The balance between fruity and smoky notes is the focus here. We have achieved this by blending different casks from our cask store. The juicy fruity notes come mainly from the sherry casks used, which bring a classic sweetness to the whiskey. The smoky part comes from a distillate where peat-smoked malt is the origin. This is then matured in spicy oak barrels, where red wine was previously stored. The result is a captivating variety of flavors, which comes along in typical Langatun manner buttery soft. The Old Wolf is thus a whiskey for every occasion and makes a great trap in the glass with its reddish brown color.
Color: Reddish brown
Aroma: caramel, toasted almonds, very subtle salt notes, ripe peach, forest honey, stewed cherries, sweet smoke discreetly in the background
Taste: intense, very spicy, slightly sweet, dried fruit, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, wood, cloves, peat smoke harmoniously embedded
Finish: aromatic, subtle tannins, rather dry, woody, light smoke

Old Bear is a smoky 100% barley malt whisky. It is made from a blend of the best origin barley malt smoked over beechwood and fermented with a selected English stout yeast.
