STAUNING RYE WHISKY 

It started as a question on a weekend trip in May 2005, why does no one in Denmark make whisky?

Stauning Whisky, one of the distilleries leading the charge for New World Whisky, is the result of what can happen when a group of friends with different backgrounds combine their passion and effort in an experiment to push the boundaries of whisky making. The nine friends had a vision: A 100% Danish whisky, one which reflected the place and could stand comparison to the finest from around the world.
Despite starting without any experience, by August 2006 the friends had their first drops of spirit coming from their stills.

In 2018, Stauning moved out of the bakery they started in, opening the doors to a new and modern, purpose-built distillery.

FLOOR MALTING

Stauning Whisky uses only local barley and rye all of which is floor-malted in-house using methods that draws upon centuries of whisky-making knowhow and tradition – but with a twist of Stauning ingenuity and innovation.

24 COPPER POT STILLS

Direct-firing the distillery’s 24 copper pot stills helps to create complex and deep flavours and adds weight and character to Stauning’s whiskies. It’s difficult and expensive, but it’s totally worth it.

From Stauning’s delicious range we have chosen to share a liquid interpretation of freshly baked Danish rye bread. The first rye whisky we’ve shared combines malted rye and barley and pot still distillation to make a smooth, fruity and full-bodied whisky which is made with 51% floor malted rye and 49% floor malted barley.

This is a whisky that I have wanted to share for a while, and I hope it’s a bottle that you enjoy as much as me.
