Kyrö Distillery Company

Operated by: Kyrö Distillery Company

The Kyrö Distillery Company journey started in a sauna with some whisky… Miika Lipiäinen was having a sauna night with Mikko and Miko and bought along a bottle of Rittenhaus Rye. Rye was non-existent as a spirit category in Finland at the time, but there’s a notion that rye is the most Finnish of grains.

Kyrö Distillery Company Brands:

Kyrö Koskue Gin

Barrel aged gin Kyrö Koskue is the perfect union of rye, locally sourced botanicals and American white oak cask maturation. This unusual gin naturally also has a lot of whisky drinking fans. Koskue is aged in small American oak barrels for at least three months and fine-tuned with freshly distilled orange peel and black pepper that complement the vanilla from the barrel and the heat from the rye. Koskue has won numerous international awards, most recently a Gold Medal from 2017 San Francisco World Spirit Competition and Outstanding Silver in IWSC 2017. It’s perfect to be enjoyed neat, as an Old Fashioned or very short Gin & Tonic. For those who wonder: Koskue is a village and origin of river Kyrö.

Kyrö Napue Gin

Napue’s key components are deeply rooted in the very heart of Finnish nature. Cool as the Finnish summer night but with the heat of rye and the midnight sun, it is a gin unlike any other. Napue is named after the village the gin is made in, using hand foraged botanicals including birch leaves, seabuckthorn, cranberries, and meadowsweet, which combine to give the scents and flavours of an early morning, misty Finnish meadow.
