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 whisky from the island of Islay. Despite little whisky experience, it was quickly followed by great praise: “If you continue like this, it could become one of the best smoky whiskys in the world,” said whisky legend Jim Murray when he tried the New Make in 2006.
The distillers from Ringkøbing Fjord put Danish whisky on the map and wrote a success story with it. Single malt, malted rye whisky 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.

El Clásico is the third release from Stauning’s experimental research series – and the world’s first rye whisky that matured in vermouth casks. Rye whisky and the herbal wine form a classic combination in the cult cocktail Manhattan. Combining their rye made from 51% rye and 49% barley malt from the company’s own malt base with Spanish vermouth casks was therefore the logical choice for the Danes who were keen to experiment. The attempt was more than successful – among other things, this is what the “Category Winner” award at the World Whiskys Awards 2021 stands for. El Clásico is a warm-blooded whisky with the typical grain notes of Stauning Rye and an aftertaste that is sweet and a hint of bitter Pleasantly botanicals.
The deep amber color of Danish whisky speaks fo its own in the clear 700ml glass bottle that bears the trademark of the Research Series: an illustration by tattoo artist Thit Hansgaard. The demonic design is inspired by wormwood, the main ingredient in vermouth. Throughout history, the herbaceous plant has often been associated with evil and bad luck. In the right quantities wormwood herb has healing powers. El Clásico gets the best out of the plant and tastes pure, in an exclusive cocktail or with a cigar.
