Looking for Stauning Whisky?

Due to restrictions on trade involving alcohol across borders, we are not able to ship bottles outside of Denmark. The best we can do is to guide you towards our international distributors.

Also, we may have sold out - but - try your luck at our international distributors and larger Danish webshops - they ship to almost anywhere in Europe and the rest of the world... 


What makes Stauning Rye special? A few things actually. First of all it's Danish and made exclusively from local rye and barley - a true terroir product. Secondly, it's made like a single malt whisky. The grains are floor-malted and the spirit is distilled on Scottish pot stills heated with direct fire. This makes it kind of a hybrid between American rye and Scottish single malt. The best of both worlds. 

This rye whisky has matured in virgin heavy-charred American white-oak casks. To spice it up we have matured it for an additional 6 months in Jamaica rum casks. The presence of the sweet dark rum is so pronounced in this version that you could mistake it for a rum from its smell - the taste however is unmistakenly rye whisky.  

It contains no artificial flavouring or colouring.

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

- Floor malted local barley 30%
- Floor malted local rye 70%
- Double pot still distilled
- Direct-fired stills

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