Kyro Single Malt Rye Whisky
The idea for Kyrö Distillery Company, an all-rye distillery from Finland, was born in a classic Finnish way – with a group of friends enjoying a sauna and drinking rye whisky. Wondering why there hadn't been a Finnish rye whisky distillery despite the grain's wide-spread popularity, they decided to take matters in their own hands. Choosing an old dairy as Kyrö's home, their beginnings were modest. The first fermentation actually took place in the head distiller's childhood home while his parents were on vacation and the mush then needed to be transferred to a craft whisky distillery hundreds of kilometers away to undergo the first distillation.
Kyrö Malt is the first Finnish single batch rye whisky, made from 100% malted Finnish wholegrain rye with only intense and spicy Finnish rye, smoothening pot distillation and bold barrels used in the production of this unique spirit. Aged through dark winters and bright summers in new American white oak casks and ex-bourbon casks, it’s double pot distilled. Kyrö Malt is adored for its aromatic nose of vanilla, caramel and earth rye as well as its palate of sweet rye bread, honey and wild berries. Bottled at 47.2% abv.
