A world of pleasure and experience

The story of Macardo began in 2007 in the small but beautiful village of Strohwilen - a place, just like Macardo, that was initially only known to a few. But with every award our Swiss premium whiskies and spirits received, more and more people got to know and love us. Soon our customers wanted more than just our products - they wanted to be a part of Macardo. This is how the idea for the Macardo World of Enjoyment came about: a place where tradition and the art of distilling meet enjoyment and where special moments can be experienced. We invite you to discover for yourself all that Macardo has to offer.


1 / 6


The tradition of refining high-quality raw materials lives on in our historic cheese dairy building from 1904. Once the focus was on cheese production, today it is the fine whiskies, spirits, vieilles and grappas from Macardo that reflect our passion. Our craft is based on the original method of distilling with wood, implemented in two stills specially made for us. Our distillation process combines deep knowledge with modern innovation. Immerse yourself in the world of our traditional craft with a guided tour, a distilling course or a tailor-made event and experience the art of distillation up close.

Foundation barrel - laying the foundation stone

The basic design

On September 18, 2019, the groundbreaking took place for our new distillery and the world of Macardo. That this became possible, we have to thank many people. Especially the local population, who have supported our project from the beginning.

To the distillery

View of nature from Macardo


Macardo has a comprehensive sustainability concept. It is based on spring water, wood, solar energy, geothermal energy and a waste concept. These sustainable resources form the basis for a Co2-neutral distillation process, the creation of a perfect aging climate in the barrel storage facility, and the coverage of the entire heating and cooling budget in the Macardo world.
