Our contemporary company resulted from a firm founded in 1876 by Reinhold Schmidt as a spirit and liqueur factory which was taken over in 1897 by Theodor Kramer and continued from 1932 by three tenants as Th. Kramer & Co. The main product was Kramer-Aromatique, and to this day we still use its original recipe to make Genuine Neudietendorf Aromatique.
Our spirits factory was saved under the GDR regime by two typical steps: state participation in 1958 and full nationalisation in 1972. However, from 1958 onwards the state required it only to produce Aromatique in order to cope with demand for the popular digestive bitter caused by the closure of the other four producers.
With reprivatisation and the subsequent founding of the Spirituosenfabrik Aromatique GmbH on 1st August, 1991, a new era in the firm's more than 100 year history was ushered in. Today we are an independent family business with a staff of eighteen.
The poor state of the works which dated from the preceding century and were situated in the middle of the town were reason enough for us to build a new plant in the Neudietendorf industrial estate. Thus since 1995 we have a factory equipped with modern technology and built on a scale to cope with future expansion, which being next to the A4 autobahn has superb logistical access.
Since then the new production facilities have enabled us to enlarge our range of products. Next to our main product of AROMATIQUE and in continuance of company tradition, we today produce further bitters, semi-bitters, liqueurs and private label brands.
