Entry into the fruit-juice business

Eckes launches the production and marketing of fruit juice (Eckes Grape Juice) as a second pillar alongside its spirits business under the “Eckes” brand name beginning in 1936. This establishes the foundation for more than 70 years of parallel fruit-beverage and spirits marketing by Eckes.
