Deutsche Spirituosen Manufaktur

Premium Spirits from Berlin

DSM is a German spirit manufacturer developing and producing premium small-batch and wholly handmade spirits. Every production stage is performed by hand, from the preparation of the raw ingredients through to maceration, mashing, and careful distillation and packing.

Our “Made in Berlin” label isn’t just an empty phrase: it’s a promise. Everything is done at our production site and attached showroom in a spacious, listed brick building, located right in the centre of Berlin. We also run guided tours, workshops and individual company events there.

Our passion for developing completely new recipes and for the craft of distilling means we systematically pursue our goal of creating outstanding spirits – unique, innovative products with uncompromising quality.

Quality doesn’t happen by chance; it requires careful planning. It starts with the selection of handpicked, high-quality, mainly organic, natural raw materials. During the distillation process in the best available copper stills, we pay particular attention to careful separation of the first and last runnings. We never add artificial flavours and dyes of any kind either. Sugar is only used where it is indispensable, i.e. in our liqueurs. Together with the subsequent product storage and maturation, as well as strict quality control, our production methods create the conditions for meeting our rigorous standards.

Our exceptional distillates are guaranteed to provide moments of pleasure that recall past taste sensations while also discovering new ones. Lovers and connoisseurs of premium spirits will find our unique eaux-de-vie and spirits open up a whole new world of tastes and aromas. We want to completely redefine the concept of “premium” – nothing more, nothing less.

We want our products to open up a whole new world of taste sensations and exceptional moments of pleasure.

Marvin

Our brand ambassador and mixologist is an experienced bar manager. He knows what’s in our products and helps our customers find out how to use them in bars and kitchens – for mixing cocktails, to perfume food and drink or simply enjoyed neat.

We perfect what has been tried and tested – but above all, we develop unique and original spirits. We view ourselves as pioneers with innovative products who are revolutionising the premium spirits market.

100% natural, high-quality raw materials

Our enthusiasm for the craft of perfect distilling and unique, innovative products starts with the raw materials. Hand-picked, high-quality, natural ingredients form the foundation of our premium spirits. We source these ingredients from traditional farms in the region, other parts of Germany and all over the world.

Whether it’s cucumbers from Germany, roasted mate leaves from Brazil or hazelnuts from Piedmont: the farms often have organic certification and some even have the Demeter seal.

Smaller agricultural holdings are sometimes unable to afford certification, or it is not possible because, although they do not use pesticides, yields would be too low without using fertiliser. Our close cooperation with suppliers, regular contacts and site visits enable us to ensure all the raw materials meet our demanding quality standards.

DSM supplies authentic, 100% pure products. Our spirits and eaux-de-vie only contain what is stated on the bottle and are free from added sugar or artificial flavours.

We’ve conducted more than 850 test runs over the past three years. Our pharmacist monitors the development of entirely new recipes and ensures meticulous quality control during manufacturing.
