Danish Distillers   Danish Distillers Logo

Danish Distillers was founded in 1881 by C.F. Tietgen and C.A. Olesen. At the time they were both enterprising businessmen, and their common goal was to merge a number of smaller distilleries and create a company that could export aquavit to the wine-producing countries.

As managing director they appointed Polish-born Isidor Henius. At only 17 years of age he had already served his apprenticeship as a distiller and was proving himself an enterprising young man in the development of new products. Several of the brands we know and appreciate today date from this period.

Since 1840 the Brondum family had been producing the well-known BRONDUM KUMMENAQUAVIT, and in 1893 this family with its proud distilling traditions joined forces with Danish Distillers.
