Kyrö may be the first stop on our European tour! We love theses guys and their rye-based spirits. Kyrö produces gin, whiskey, bitters & a cream liquer. In America Rye is usually associated with aged whiskey. Bold flavors followed by a spicy somewhat medicinal finish. Finland's terroir plays an important role and the Rye grown, harvested and processed in Finland is full of flavor, very approachable and lacks the medicinal burn found in many American rye whiskeys. Don't misunderstand us we DO love American rye just not in this context. As a result, Kyrö's un-aged spirits are incredibly diverse when it comes to imbibing neat or crafting cocktails.

"The obvious question on everybody’s lips was why hasn’t anybody made a Finnish rye whisky, especially given the fact that Finns consume six times more rye than the world average and rye bread is the official national dish! From there the idea grew and before long, our distillery found a perfect home in an old dairy in the Finnish village of Isokyrö. After some gentle renovations, stills were first heated up in 2014 and from there the distillery has gone to win several international prizes and we now sell our products in dozens of countries around the world. We are proud to be the world’s northern most gin and whisky distillery producing the finest single malt rye whisky and rye gin."
"Napue gin was voted as “The World’s Best Gin for Gin & Tonic” by the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) in 2015 and in 2016 Napue won the gold medal in the San Francisco World Spirit Competition premium gin-series."
"Enjoy your Napue Gin & Tonic with plenty of ice, a twig of rosemary, a few cranberries and your favourite tonic water." We love Fever Tree!
