Barrel owner FAQ

Everything you've ever wanted to know about owning a barrel of Kyrö whisky

1. HOW DOES IT WORK IN PRACTICE?

Getting a Kyrö whisky barrel is easy. Take a look at the different barrels we have available on this site, add it to the basket and complete the check-out. We'll be in contact after that and sign a digital contract on maturing a barrel for you. Once the contract is signed and SEPA invoice paid you are a barrel owner. From that point on, we'll send you a sample once every year so you can follow the development of your whisky. You're also invited to all of our live events that take place in Finland. In 3-5 years the whisky is ready. It will be bottled and we take care of everything needed to get the bottles to Germany.

2. CAN I SHARE A BARREL WITH FRIENDS?

Yes and you absolutely should. Shared joy is the best joy! Kyrö signs a contract with one person, who can then share the barrel and costs with how many people he/she sees fit.

3. HOW MUCH WHISKY WILL I GET?

We promise 100x 0,5 liter bottles at 46,5% from our 60-liter barrels. If you're buying a share from a bigger barrel, each share equals 45 bottles.

4. HOW MUCH IS IT AND HOW DO I PAY?

Costs can be found on each barrel contract page above. For example, a 60 liter Kyrö Rye Malt barrel costs 4199,00€. After we've signed a contract, we'll send you an invoice to your email that covers everything related to your barrel. It is a SEPA bank transfer that has no fees within the EU.

5. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

The whisky will reach its peak of maturation in 3 to 5 years with the barrels that we use. Whisky can't be rushed and patience is a virtue. Our whisky team tastes the barrels and will let you know when it's getting ready.

6. CAN I GET A CUSTOM LABEL?

You can get 30 characters of your own text on the label on one row. Barrels also get a copper plaque where 80 character of your own text can be engraved.

7. A WHOLE BARREL OR A BARREL SHARE?

Some barrels are massive and buying a whole barrel would be too much for even the most devout whisky drinkers. We split these barrels into shares and you can buy as many as you need. When buying a barrel share, you don't get to keep the barrel (unless you own all the shares). Other than, there is no difference in buying a barrel of your own or a share. In both cases the end result is tasty whisky.

8. I OWN A BARREL, BUT I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S READY? WHEN IS THE NEXT TASTING?

The latest barrel update is always visible at tasting.kyrodistillery.com. Use your barrel id/number to check its status. If the number is correct, but no page shows, it means the distillate is still too young and it does not have its own profile.

Next sample will be sent to you in Autumn 2022.
