Jüngmann’s, Brooklyn’s oldest brandy is now Jü — provocative new look, same celebrated taste.
The Story of Jü
Founded in Brooklyn by Otto Jüngmann in 1872, our family has produced small-batch, hand-crafted spirits since before it was cool. From bacchanals to formal balls, we’ve always believed there was an art to celebration.
That’s why it came as no surprise to us when a new generation of urban pioneers rediscovered Jüngmann’s, and we became a staple of New York art scene. You could find our brandy being mixed at every warehouse art opening and after-hours dance party in Brooklyn, often in the same industrial district where Otto distilled his first batch of spirits.
Now a new generation of the family has returned to fulfill our brand’s artistic vision. J.J. Gold, Otto’s great-great-great-great-grandson, spent his twenties chasing the perfect party — from Berlin to Ibiza to Coachella — and funding the hottest startups and projects (Psyde Kicks custom sneakers, Stubble for Men cologne, and the viral Broify app). Seeking his life’s next chapter, J.J. returned to Brooklyn to double down on the family business and his passion for drinking.
This one’s for Jü!
With the help from our creative friends at Blandly, we’ve updated our look and our name to better match the freewheeling spirit of our spirits.
So like a DJ, let’s artfully mix some Jü for every abstract painter, misunderstood rapper, transgressive comedian, first-wave gentrifier, and street art dilettante. This one’s for jü!
