A Nordic rye Gin that beat 150 others as the best G&T Gin.

The idea for Kyrö Distillery Company came about when a bunch of friends were hanging in the sauna and sipping on Rye ― which is undoubtedly how many great stories start in Finland. The beverage on hand probably had something to do with the distillery focusing on rye Spirit exclusively. After a little bit of tinkering and distilling at home, they found an old dairy where their very own stills started running in 2014. With their maturing Whisky safely tucked away, they turned to Gin in the meantime. The first award came practically instantly and their stock was sold out in a matter of days.

Only Finnish wholegrain rye goes into Kyrö Gin (formerly known as Napue). What started as a way to keep themselves busy while waiting for the Whisky to mature, turned out to be a delicious Spirit! 13 traditional botanicals serve as the base and the remaining 4 are foraged locally. It's the meadowsweet, sea buckthorn, cranberries, and birch leaves that give the modern Gin a fresh Nordic twist. That award we mentioned earlier? Kyrö Gin won "The World’s Best Gin for Gin&Tonic" trophy at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, beating some 150 other entries. Impressive, right? 

*Kyrö Distillery has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Kyrö Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Kyrö Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
