In the Drink
Alex Rainer of Rochelt Distillery
For twenty years, Gunter Rochelt distilled brandy made from the finest fruit and shared it with his closest friends. By founding the Rochelt Brandy Distillery in 1989, Gunter quickly discovered an expanded circle of good friends. Back then the product line included seven varieties of brandy made from various fruit. Today, we produce 21 varieties and the next generation runs this still family-owned business.
Alexander Rainer, Gunter’s son in law, has been active in the family business since 2003 and learned the art of distillation first hand under Gunter’s mentorship. Alexander now runs the family business with the support of the three Rochelt daughters: Julia, Annia and Teresa.
