My wife, Mirjam, wanted it to be surprise; and it was a complete surprise. Never would I have expected a whisky bar/distillery nestled high in the Swiss Alps, but there he was: Gunter and his magic potions, showing us his Guiness record-holding smallest bar on...More

I had read an interview with Gunter in a whisky magazine a few years ago and had since then tried to find an excuse to go see the Bar. Thankfully, I'm married to a Swiss who wanted us to spend our summer holiday in Graubunden....More

I came to Santa Maria and was not expecting more than nice people, family- and mountainexplorer-welcome surrounding, traditional Regional food and spectacular panoramas. So far no disappointments, but more than surprised I was, to find a real Whisky Bar, nominated as the smallest whisky bar...More
