Longhorn DistilleryPrebitz, Germany
For many years, the two Franconian Wild West fans and enthusiastic western riders Anna and Alexander Leichtenstern have been breeding American quarter horses. During their stays in America, they got to know and love the majestic Texas Longhorn cattle. "Because these wonderful animals embody a myth of the Wild West for us, the desire arose to breed them ourselves," says Anna Leichtenstern. At the beginning of 2011, the first 24 Longhorn cattle were flown in via Luxembourg. With their farm in Altencreußen, the couple has succeeded in fulfilling a lifelong dream by breeding the largest Longhorn herd in Europe with excellent breeding lines. Like the cowboys, the cattle with the imposing Longhorns are part of the myth of the Wild West and gave their name not only to the "Texas Longhorn Ranch" but also to the "Longhorn Distillery". A total of more than 60 hectares of organically farmed land is owned by the Leichtenstern family in Altencreußen - according to strict ecological guidelines in harmony with nature, species-appropriate and respectful of the animals.
"The passion for good regional food is what drives us – working with people who passionately bring good food to perfection is both inspiration and drive for us."
