What are four engineers, a teacher, a cook, a butcher, a pilot and a doctor? The founding team of the Danish Stauning distillery! In 2005 the friends decided to put a vision into practice: single malt based on the model of peaty whiskey from the island of Islay. Despite little whiskey experience, it was quickly followed by great praise: “If you continue like this, it could become one of the best smoky whiskeys in the world,” said whiskey legend Jim Murray when he tried the New Make 2006.
The distillers from Ringkøbing Fjord put Danish whiskey on the map and wrote a success story with it. Single malt, malted rye whiskey and Co. from Stauning are based exclusively on high-quality ingredients from the region and a variety of different barrels. Even the standard range of the Danes is therefore very diverse. Stauning brings even more variety into play with single cask bottlings.
