Albert Michler Rum
Albert Michler is one of the oldest distilleries and rum houses of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. Founded in the 1863 in Silesia – today part of the Czech Republic – Albert Michler supplied rum to the Imperial Court and Navy. Today, Albert Michler upholds this tradition of excellence by sourcing only the finest rums from Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago and the Dominican Republic.
Albert Michler Distillery Int. Ltd. in the UK is not really a direct successor of the traditional company “Albert Michler, Buchsdorf, Likör- Rum und Spiritus Fabrik in Buchsdorf”, Austrian Silesia. Nowadays Albert Michler liqueurs and spirits are produced in the UK, but with great respect for their ancestors. Former traditions are binding to the company. There were times when people as different as Germans, Czechs, Austrians, Hungarians, Croatians, Slovenians and other nations lived peacefully in the common Monarchy of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. In those days honour was supreme to law. The believe is that it is the greatest challenge to pursue and maintain the heritage of fathers and grandfathers and their efforts. It was in the year 1863 that Albert Michler decided to establish a liqueur factory in Buchsdorf in Silesia. This decision was taken due to the fact that in this new territory, Upper Silesia in the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, the land was full of water and offered sufficient natural herbs and spices necessary for producing liquor and spirits. Albert Michler was a great man and a prominent entrepreneur. His father, Franz Michler, was a landowner in Buchsdorf. Albert was a very skillful landowner, but more important he was the producer of the world-famous liqueur “Original Buchsdorfer Magenbitter”.
