Nuremberg: Epicenter of the German Whisky Scene

It's not only beer, sausages and gingerbread which are culinary symbols of Nuremberg: The city has become the epicenter of the German whisky scene. And for good reasons!

Germany's oldest whisky club, excellent organic single malt whiskys produced in the heart of the Old Town, custom whisky shops and bars and the whisky fair "The Village" demonstrate the city's fascination for this noble beverage.

Proof that you don't only have to enjoy whisky in liquid form comes from Nuremberg butcher Metzgerei Steiner: They have combined high-quality Scottish malt whisky with the finest ham. In order to fully develop the whisky aroma, the meat ripens over a slow-roasting red-beech flame. The "Grand Malt", as it is called, is one-of-a-kind and an absolute flavour experience.

The creative Nuremberg candy producer "Il Massimo" has also taken up the theme of whisky. The finest truffle pralines in combination with various high-quality whiskys are a must for anyone who craves a highbrow indulgence.
