With more than 20,000 visitors a year, the distillery visitor centre is one of the most popular destinations in Rhineland‑Palatinate. There are also tasting seminars, guided tours and even the option of making your own gin.
The slate soils of Rhineland‑Palatinate not only produce excellent wines, they are also perfect for growing rapeseed and provide really special nutrients for the plants. And you can taste that in the oil made from the rapeseed. This is why Burkhard Kemp and Alexander Seeger named the product of their oil mill in Gödenroth near Kastellaun in the Hunsrück ‘Hochland Schieferrapsöl’, or upland slate rapeseed oil. They make the rapeseed oil at their mill using traditional cold-pressing methods. The rapeseed is gently processed in an extruder press to retain as many vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids as possible. The oils are refined with natural flavourings including garlic, butter, basil and lavender.
The oil mill forms part of the SooNahe regional brand, an association of producers in the Hunsrück and Nahe regions offering excellent-quality regional foods. Guided tours of the mill are available by prior appointment.
