Krügers Whiskygalerie Profile

Whisky enthusiast Thomas Krüger has been collecting whisky since 1974, and now operates the Whisky Krüger museum, cafe and shop in Holzbunge, on the outskirts of Rendsburg in Germany.

As well as being a showcase for his 7,000-strong collection, the store also sells Krüger’s independently bottled whiskies, which appear under the Eidora, Baffo, Schloβ, Gerhard der Groβe, Jubiläums-Whisky, and The Freedom of 811 labels.

In addition, Krüger also operates online whisky auction website,

Krügers Whiskygalerie History

Krüger began collecting whisky miniatures in 1974. It was a passion that grew into something of an obsession and he soon began to collect full size bottles as well. In 1994 he opened his Whiskygalerie in Holzbunge to display his collection, and shortly after began to import whisky to Germany.

Krüger’s first independent bottlings were released under his own labels the following year, while, one of the first online whisky auctions sites, was founded in 1997.

In September 2016 the Whiskygalerie was given a makeover and rebranded as Whisky Krüger.
