Stauning Rye is a true classic in their product range. The spirit is distilled in traditional direct-fire pot stills which results in a complex whisky with lots of nuances to explore.
It is a straight rye whisky since it contains no artificial flavour or colouring and it has been matured between 3 to 4 years.
Its distilled in Denmark, West Jutland, Stauning. Around 300-4000 bottles were made from the particular batch that I got and it’s bottled att 50% abv.
Stauning Rye contains only floor malted rye and floor-malted barley. This makes it something very special in the world of whisky.
At Stauning Whisky we do all processes on-site, and it means that we can handle the malting of the rye.
Notes from the producer:
It’s warm, friendly and fresh at the same time spicy, bold, full-bodied and seems considerably older than the age suggests.
One clearly tastes the Rye and recognize the scent of freshly baked rye bread.
