This is the work of many from the very beginning!" Werner Hornung Weyermann® logistics manager handed over the honorary certificate for 25 years of service on behalf of the Bavarian Free State by the Bavarian State Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Family and Integration to Thomas Kraus-Weyermann - a political act, as he pointed out: a Franconian hands over a Bavarian certificate to a Westphalian!

You are now in the maturity, the crucial period for a whiskey. " and handed over a Quarter Century Whiskey.

The gift was a Bullani hat in Weyermann® design, made out of an Weyermann® jute bag which he put on right away.
