Brunnwald Austria, Fernet Hunter, Fernet

Fernet Hunter is created by Raphael Holzer with a passion for quality food and drink.

Raphael’s family history is embedded in alcohol production. His

great grandfather, Oskar Holzer, was first introduced to the world

of spirits with Fernet Stock in Trieste, Italy. Oskar helped build

the Stock empire and guided the company through adversity at

every turn, including relocating to Linz, Austria during the Second

World War. It was in Austria where his son, Guido Holzer, became

an accomplished distiller at Stock and in the late 1960’s, Guido

branched out on his own to start Holzer & Holzer. Guido’s son,

Gilbert Holzer, eventually took over the business and continued

the family craft of distilling in the Brunnwald Forest, 30 kilometers north of Linz. This is where Raphael grew up, where his own passion for the spirit industry began, and where Fernet Hunter is currently produced today.
