ABOUT BESPOKE SPIRITS
Bespoke Spirits operates internationally but its atelier is located in Alberndorf, a romantic village surrounded by picture-postcard vineyard hills in Austria’s largest winegrowing area one hour north of Vienna. Our atelier with its vast cellar is in a beautifully restored building which served for generations to make fantastic white wine.
The team around Bespoke Spirits includes distillers, award winning designers and sommeliers and is hand-picked according to the specifics and requirements of your project.
Georg Punkenhofer, the founder of Bespoke Spirits, comes from a family which demonstrated passion for making beer and spirits since the 19th century. He is a lawyer by education, worked many years with creatives around the world and gathered as president of the board of a watch company extensive experience in the luxury goods industry. Living in England he fully immersed himself into the wonderful world of distilling and is particularly fascinated by the unlimited possibilities to personalise gin. References for his work and samples can be provided upon request.
His own gin brand OSERGU was composed in Alberndorf as a homage to the Weinviertel in Lower Austria. OSERGU celebrates conviviality which cellar lanes in this region are famous for and which was recognized in 2022 by UNESCO as “Intangible Cultural Heritage”. This unique gin is crafted in England by 1000 Trades Distillery (www.1kdistillery.co.uk), a family-owned, local, and independent craft distillery which has won medals at several prestigious international competitions. OSERGU gin stands out by combining Austrian flavors and creativity with excellent English craftsmanship.
