Rye Whisky

Kyrö Single Malt Rye Whisky

We only use Finnish 100% wholegrain rye. Rye grows in the poorest soil and harshest conditions. It has kept the finnish population alive and our bread dark. The northern rye is smaller in grain size, but packs more flavour. Rye may be the hardest grain to distill due to its temperament and tendency to overboil in stills. But we know it is worth the trouble.

This is not your usual single malt. Our Single Malt Rye Whisky is made from 100% malted wholegrain rye from Finland and aged in new American white oak or ex-bourbon barrels. Wholegrain rye gives the whisky a hearty and spicy flavour with a full mouthfeel, which is balanced with sweet honey and vanilla from American white oak.

The first, very limited pre-release was introduced in 2017 and the releases will continue to be limited until 2020.
