About the Distillery

The Enghaven Distillery was established during the summer and autumn of 2007 by Esben Moestrup, Erik Moestrup and Mikkel Nordkvist, and apparently we are the first distillery in Jutland and only the second in Denmark to produce spirits of the Eau-de-Vie type. For a long time we have been contemplating the idea of applying our raw material, experience and interest to creating a micro-production of Noble fruit spirits of the finest quality. The Enghaven farm provides the ideal frame for the production of fruit spirits as everything we need is found right outside our door; clean and fresh spring water and fertile soil, where the fruit trees provide us with the loveliest and most tasty fruit every year.

However, a passion for what we do was hardly sufficient to establish a production, so after the 29th of October, when the company "the Enghaven Distillery, Ltd" was officially founded, we spent a great deal of time and energy obtaining the necessary licenses to produce spirits. For example we applied for subsidies at the rural district's program, which is intended to provide people with an opportunity to live in and off rural districts. The Enghaven Distillery received the maximal percentage of subsidies for the project, which we are very proud of and view as a sign of recognition in our enterprise.

In the early summer of 2008 all the required permits had been obtained and on the 25th of June 2008, the heart of our production arrived - a Müller Brennereianlagen Gmbh burner. The burner is hand-welded from copper and stainless steel. Our burner is of the patented aRoMat type - the most exquisite when it comes to aromatics and flavor in the spirits as well as clarity in the alcohol.

On the 26th of June 2008 the first Elshoff spirits were burned and left to season.
