Brandy was made on the winery property beginning in 1876, like the wine production, it stopped at the turn of the century. In 2015, the family built a stillhouse and a distillery store for brandy and other spirits. Working with several traditional copper stills, Wollersheim Distillery produces brandy, whiskey, bourbon, gin and absinthe
The Wisconsin riverside bluff on which we’ve built our distillery was first planted with grapevines in the Winemaker Philippe Coquard and son-in-law Tom Lenerz bring a winemaking approach to the spirits with attention to terroir, slow fermentations and quality of woods sourced for barrel aging, resulting in these fine spirits.
The distillery store features all of our Wollersheim spirits, and a variety of glassware and gift items. We offer a fine selection of Wisconsin cheeses, unique food items, gift boxes and a variety of distillery apparel.
