Brutally Finnish Kyrö Malt Rye Whisky

Whisky you haven't tasted before

We wanted to make a whisky that stands out, which is why we make whisky the Finnish way, using 100% regional rye. Kyrö Malt is double pot-distilled and aged in new American white oak barrels. It was awarded 98/100 points and Gold Outstanding at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2020.

Kyrö Malt was also featured in The New York Times which is a pretty big deal to us because Finland is a small country and nobody really knows we even exist.

Taste the full range of Finnish rye

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.
