Character Goatson
Conceived in a sauna, born of Finnish rye.

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.

While the Gin proved to be a massive success that spawned many different variants, 2020 finally marked the year when Kyrö Malt Rye Whisky was ready to be added to the core range. 100% Finnish wholegrain rye, double pot-distilled, and aged in new American oak, the Whisky is no slouch either and already has that San Francisco Gold to prove it. Vanilla, earthiness, dried fruit, rye bread, plenty of spice... The Finns sure know how to craft a proper Rye!

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
