JOHNETT - a unique Whisky

Swiss Single Malt Whisky distilled by ETTER Zug

JOHNETT 2011 - Aged 8 years - Swiss Single Malt Whisky 44% vol

JOHNETT 2011 is using 100% regional resources. Local mash from barley malt supplied by the Baar brewery, distillation in the house of Etter, spring water from the nearby stalactite caves in Baar and oak barrels from the top-quality Rosenau wine-growing estate, all interact to produce finally a product that combines regionality, authenticity and the highest quality .

The origin

The home of JOHNETT lies in the picturesque region of Zug right in the heart of Switzerland. It is here in this flora and fauna pre-Alpine paradise, with its fields, forests, lakes and mountains, that the unique JOHNETT Swiss Single Malt Whisky is produced. JOHNETT represents another culinary trademark for Zug – in addition to Etter Kirsch and the Zug kirsch gâteau.

The Brewery

Only the best ingredients are good enough for our JOHNETT Single Malt Whisky. In the Uster family and its small, fine quality Baar Brewery we have found the ideal partner for the production of the all-important barley malt. The Baar Brewery, founded in 1862, enjoys an excellent reputation and, like the firm of Etter, continues to be a genuine family-run business.

The mountain-spring water

In the stalactite caves in Baar, which have been owned by the Schmid family for generations, nature provides one of the purest sources of water in Switzerland. It takes a full ten years for one drop of rain to reach the ceiling of the cave and fall into the spring basin. This ancient spring water is used to refine the JOHNETT Swiss Single Malt Whisky.

The distillation process

In 1870 Paul Etter founded the Etter Distillery in Zug. Today, the name Etter represents the seal of approval for high quality fruit liqueurs. Permission to distill whisky in Switzerland was granted on 1 July 1999. 140 years after Etter Söhne AG was founded, the family added another product to its range of spirits; the high quality JOHNETT Swiss Single Malt Whisky, produced with passion. The quality is personally guaranteed by Master Distiller, John Etter.

The maturing process

JOHNETT whisky is matured for at least three years in the unique and particularly moist conditions of the stalactite caves in Baar. Storage in special oak barrels from the Rosenau vineyards of the Ottiger family near Lucerne gives the destillate a unique flavour and makes JOHNETT Swiss Single Malt Whisky an experience for the senses for passionate connoisseurs.
