Herbert Doerken

Calvados, an exquisite apple brandy

Today we fondly remember Herbert Doerken, on, what would have been his 100th birthday! (Jan. 4th) In 1986, Herbert was GUHDO USA’s founding majority partner. From post-World War II onwards, he was the driving force behind GUHDO Werk’s comeback to become one of Germany’s leading manufacturers of wood cutting tools, shipping product worldwide!
A genuine man, and a good man, we miss him! His memory and his mission live on!
Pictured below is a bottle of Calvados, a gift from Herbert’s “private stash” of his favorite apple brandy “after dinner” drink, given to GUHDO USA’s current President, Karin Deutschler over 20 years ago… this bottle has been saved for a special occasion! Today is a special day indeed! If he were here, we would raise our glass of Calvados and say “Auf Dich! Herbert!” (here’s to you, Herbert!)
