Distillation has been commonplace in Germany for centuries, but it took until 2002 for the first single malt whisky to be released – by Slyrs in Bavaria. Today, there are more than 20 whisky distilleries in the country, with one of the best known being Hammerschmiede in the Harz Mountains which produces the Glen Els range.
