DAS PEACH HOUSE
Das Peach House is the country store where Fischer & Weiser says it all began. The building it's located in was a Lone Star Beer Warehouse constructed in 1913. Prohibition changed things and it soon became a wholesale grocery warehouse where Mark Weiser's mother worked as an accountant.
Mark purchased the historic building in 1976 and moved it to its current location as they were looking to expand the original Das Peach Haus log cabin and open a bigger store to house fresh peaches and the jams and jellies they made.
Das Peach House is still the only place where you can test every single Fischer & Weiser product.
Dietz Distillery is the concept and dream of Dietz Fischer of Fredericksburg, Texas. He was inspired by being raised in the family business, Fischer & Wieser Specialty Foods.
The brand's first product is Five Judges Gin, a juniper forward, dry London style gin with hints of Rio Grande Valley citrus. They also have peach and pear brandy, an orange liqueur, seasonal eau de vie’s, and raspberry vodka. All of them made with ripe, fresh, homegrown, and locally sourced fruit.
