Whisky on the rocks in Switzerland

Move over Scotland—Appenzell, nestled at the foot of the Alpstein range, is Switzerland’s very own single-malt paradise!

Whisky tastes better in Appenzell, the Swiss single-malt paradise

Switzerland’s Alpine Whiskytrek is a trail worth toasting to

Move over Scotland—Appenzell, nestled at the foot of the Alpstein range, is Switzerland’s very own single-malt paradise!

Walk the Whiskytrek, billed as the world’s highest whisky tour, to sample the Säntis brand’s varied spirits while taking in green peaks and the chime of cowbells. The trek includes 26 mountain restaurants that each serves a unique whisky direct from the barrel.

Whiskys are more concentrated the higher in altitude they are kept, so variations in flavour and strength make each whisky truly unique. Hikers who collect and purchase samples from all 26 locations will be rewarded with a finisher’s trophy upon submitting a voucher book.

The complete walk follows the Royal Tour of the Alpstein and is 84 km long—which is why most guests opt for simple day hikes with less walking and more whisky. whiskytrek.com
