Kyrö Distillery has grown from a wild dream to a craft powerhouse with skill and capacity — and pretty good spirits. Always made from 100% rye.

Rye may be the hardest grain to distill due to its temperament, but we still only ever use Finnish wholegrain rye in our products — be it whisky, gin, or liqueur.
