We are the ones with the noble alpine herbs. We take the original use of wormwood and other alpine herbs and interpret it in a new way. One thing is certain: we provide for a new unprecedented taste experience!

We are proud of our roots and what our region and our land have to offer, thanks to which we can create innovative products. In our production we rely 100% on regional raw materials and competent local bottling companies working in compliance with the strict Austrian food standards using our recipes.

Company History

Inspired by a well-guarded secret recipe from Kasper Wiese, a great-grandfather of the founder Chrisitan Greber, an innovative beverage concept with 3 green products was created. Therefore, our basic idea is deeply rooted in the Alps. The old secret recipe for the use of special alpine herbs served as basis. After several years of development, testing and further development, the new beverage concept was born: upsynth.

The name „upsynth“ derives from the Latin name of wormwood – Artemisia Absinthium. The wormwood and its usage serve as our source of inspiration, which is why our products also contain the “Essence of the Alps”.

After first successful placements of the spirit and further investments in the product development, in 2011 the brand and the product matured to the point that upsynth GmbH  was founded. At the same time, the initiators found further investors – current upsynth shareholders, comprising 8 reputable companies from Austria and Germany.

Since the company foundation in 2011 we can record a rapid growth and are now placed in the most important sales channels in food retail, wholesale and catering trade. The focus in 2016 is on the nationwide sales in the DACH region and on the marketing and media promotion of Alpsider.
