Stauning Rye is a true classic in our product range, and the first official whisky to be released from Stauning Whisky - Rye First Impression - back in 2010. The production methods has been refined since then, but the traditions remain. The spirit is still distilled in traditional direct-fire pot stills which results in a complex whisky with lots of nuances to explore. It is a straight rye whisky since it contains no artificial flavour or colouring and it has been matured between 3 to 4 years. 

The rye and barley base make this whisky the perfect companion to Danish rye bread. Stauning Rye is basically the liquid form of rye bread. Try it as a substitute for snaps or aquavit or use it in your preferred whisky cocktail - a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned could be great choices! Check out our Drinks & Notes for a few other suggestions.

About the whisky

Stauning Rye contains only floor malted rye and floor-malted barley. This makes it something very special in the world of whisky. At Stauning Whisky we do all processes on-site, and it means that we can handle the malting of the rye. 

It's warm, friendly and fresh at the same time spicy, bold, full-bodied and seems considerably older than the age suggests. One clearly tastes the Rye and recognise the scent of freshly baked rye bread.

Everything is made on-site at the distillery using only local raw materials and traditional production methods:

- Floor malted local barley
- Floor malted local rye
- Double pot still distilled
- Direct-fired stills

- Local water of superior quality
- Non-chill filtered
- Matured and bottled on site
- Terroir product of Denmark
