Most people would not even think that whisky is produced in Switzerland, however, there are about 20 or so whisky distilleries in operation today. Langatun was quite possibly one of the first distilleries to go into operation and can trace it's history all the way back to 1857. It was then that the young, newly graduated Masterbrewer, Jakob Baumberger returned home from his studies in Munich and founded a small distillery at his father's farm and started to distil spirit.
In 1860 he took over a small brewery at Langenthal, a village which was first mentioned historically as far back as 861 as "Langatun". Over a period of years, he successfully developed both parts of his business building them both into a very successful company.

After Jakob's death, his son Hans Baumberger the 1st continued to further develop the company and in 1907 Hans and his partner's brother founded a company for the exploitation of peat in order to be able to fire the distillery and to run the malting plant. 100 years later, in 2007, master brewer and distiller Hans Baumberger the 3rd decided to continue the vision of his great grandfather, Jakob. In the best family tradition, he created the hand-crafted Langatun Single Malt Whisky and other top-class spirits.
