We do not buy grain or neutral alcohol from third party industrial producers. Our Korn tastes of Korn and every fruit liqueur tastes fully of fruit such as cherry or blackcurrant. We prefer the guiding principle of »it is better to have % vol. of the best distillate in the bottle« than »to dilute the actual taste with more water«. We use refillable 0.7- and 1.0 l reusable glass bottles and boxes. This is just one of the measures we use to look after the environment. For special occasions we offer you special brandies and, of course, provide specific packaging for gift or speciality bottles. Our house has been open to you and has welcomed many visiting groups for decades. Our »Original Haselünne Korn Academy« wants to inspire you with our motto »Stimulating the senses – enjoying nature – living in harmony«. We meet more and more connoisseurs at regional and national trade fairs and events who tell us: »Once you have tasted Rosche, you always come back!«

If you are interested in finding out more, please call us or write to us. We also thank you in advance for a brief message should you have questions, wishes or suggestions.


We live in the oldest and one of the most beautiful towns in the Emsland. Haselünne had its city rights confirmed as far back as 1272 by the bishop of Münster. The town lies in a pretty meadow and river valley and is a former Hanseatic City. The biannual »18th Korn and Hanseatic Market« takes place on the second weekend of September 2016 and bears witness to the old tradition.

The first bearer of our family name Rosche was Henrik Tobias (1714-1786). His name was derived from »Reusch«, changed to »Roesche« and today’s »Rosche«. The family Reusch of Strohe was an old family of knights from Vechta with estates in Lingen and Haselünne. Henrik Tobias probably was a descendant of one of the family branches. As farmer and merchant he continued his parents’ mercantile trade in agricultural goods. His grandson, Henricus Anton, also became a tobacco merchant. In 1865, his son »Jos. Rosche« registered the grain distillery, which had been founded in 1792, commercially under his own name. We are fortunate that, together with our employees, we have been able to continue to run the company and oldest grain distillery in Haselünne as a family owned business up to today.
