Kyrö malt rye whisky

Kyrö Malt is the first Finnish single batch rye whisky, made from 100% malted Finnish wholegrain rye.
It is double pot-distilled and aged in new American white oak casks.
They use only finnish rye that is very intense and spicy according to the distillery.

The distillery is quite new and started to make their first destillation in 2014, they are only doing 100% rye for their whisky.
Besides whisky they also produce a wide range of Gins that would be interesting to try in the future because I am a Gin lover as well.

Their malt rye whisky is bottled at 47,2% abv and is sold in 50cl bottles.
They are having the launch of this one in sweden on the 4th of may 2021 on systembolaget and the price will be 599SEK.

From the distiller:

Crafting from the forests of Finland, our distilling division continues in the footsteps that date back to
1932 and the end of prohibition. Our secretive bootleggers have stepped out of the shadowy woods and
developed into the modern day distillers, showing the world why Finns are the happiest people.
The heart of the process derives from the deepest forest and shores of thousand lakes.
We combine our passion with the finest ingredients and purest water of Finland.

Pyynikin Recycled Citrus Gin

Pyynikin does a lot of different beers and has three breweries, two of them is in Finland and one is located in Haljala, northeastern Estonia.
Besides a lot of beer they also have some handcrafted spirits like Gin and Vodka.
Their micro brewery located in the banks of the Tammerkoski in the best location of the center of Tampere does experiments and small batches
sold directly to resturants.

Pyynikin Recycled Citrus Gin is a crafted collaboration with Tiima Cocktail Bar in Tampere.
They have reused Tiima’s lemons and limes that have been pressed into juice and would otherwise be biowaste.
Recycled Citrus Gin was decided to be made as well from the already used spices in Pyynikin Payday Craft Gin.
The result is a new product that is fresh and strongly citric flavoured gin made from 100% biowaste.

It is produced in 0.5L bottles at 40%abv.

Another expression from the lovely distillery in Denmark: Mosgaard!
I have previously loved their whiskies and craftmanship and I think this one will be a really
good one, i love wine cask whiskies and port even more.

methods which are optimized to produce sweetness, softness and fruit notes.
It’s bottled at 48,3%ABV in 50cl bottled. The barrels used is a mix of Ruby casks and Tawny casks of only 50L.
