Meet the Kyrö people
Over the years Kyrö has grown to a world known distillery. Five guys with a dream turned into a supersized family. Get to know the Kyrö people.
Mikko is an ok guy who takes care of the brand. He has lots of hobbies, facial hair and ideas.
Before becoming the head distiller, this (crazy) scientist was developing biofuels and brewing beer.
Sheep farmer and distillery bar manager who keeps leaving his keys in places he forgets about.
She dreams about growing her own potatoes but for now she´s the heart (and bit of the soul) of the restaurant. Organizes local events and never says no to a glass of white wine.
When she´s not hosting, she enjoys her grandpa´s stories spiced with ice cream bowls.
The never ending smile left Isokyrö just to come back with more stories to tell. Makes the tours and drinks tasty.
Every tour and night she hosts, we´re safe. Mainly because she´s a paramedic.

Not your typical salesman, very much a cat person but also a DJ. No one knows where the gigs are, though.
Our unofficial IT-helpdesk and official salesman loves to read and travel but doesn’t have time for either.
Little spice of Mexico in Kyrö. Talks a lot, laughs at bad jokes and prefers cold weather.
Brand and marketing
Above all nonsense except when it comes to coffee. Better than tripadvisor with restaurants and g-rye-t lead of Kyrö marketing.
The one who loves to sleep late in the morning and answers your questions about the barrels. Has a work related social media addiction.
She makes the stories from the distillery spread with her marketing skills. Has a stock of flavoured chewing gum stored in a secret place that isn´t that secret.
Busy with brand related stuff and happy when the sun is shining. Art director of the office and Kyröfest.
Our product manager could easily survive on a deserted island if there was Asian food and puppies running around.

Besides barreling, loves London vibes and animals.
ABV (all but whisky) team
Captain of the gin team, master of cream and somehow the one who´s summer holidays tend to be not so successful.
Gin blender who likes sauna, loves electronic music and laughs at really bad jokes. Better known as “the sauce guy”.
Former aircraft mechanic is a talent on the baseball field and in gin distilling.
Bottling, logistics and production
In this case it takes one to tango and Jani is the one singing it while managing the Kyrö production.
Kyrö bottles would get lost in translation without these logistical skills. She´s also a damn good photographer.
Gardening enthusiast who keeps packing materials strictly in order and spices Isokyrö with her Swedish flavour.
Works in logistics and masters in casseroles. Loves animals when they are not spiders.
Office and finance
Financial director who comes down the hills freeriding. Loves mushrooming and art galleries.
