About us

Anton Kaapl

Anton Kaapl (1884 – 1948) belonged to one of the oldest families living in Jílovice at least since 1658. He was the founder of the family tradition of distilling fruit spirits. A war veteran, he fought in the Great War for the Austro-Hungarians on the east front. After a serious injury, he was released to civilian life in 1916. After the establishment of an independent Czechoslovakia in 1918, he was mayor and deputy mayor of Jílovice until the red revolutionaries of the National Committee took over in 1945.

On the basis of the long experience in the distillation of fruit spirits, a Czech family distillery was established in the South Bohemian village of Jílovice. In memory of its Austrian-Hungarian distiller’s roots, it is called Anton Kaapl and the labels on the bottles present the caption in German, “Familientradition aus Gilowitz”.
