Like many great ideas (and half of the Finnish population), the idea for Kyrö Distillery Company was conceived in a sauna by a group of friends with a shared love of rye whisky.
The obvious question on everybody’s lips was why hasn’t anybody made a Finnish rye whisky, especially given the fact that Finns consume six times more rye than the world average and rye bread is the official national dish! From there the idea grew and before long, our distillery found a perfect home in an old dairy in the Finnish village of Isokyrö.
After some gentle renovations, stills were first heated up in 2014 and from there the distillery has gone to win several international prizes and we now sell our products in dozens of countries around the world.
Kyrö are proud to be the world’s northern most gin and whisky distillery producing the finest single malt rye whisky and rye gin.
The Kyrö Spirits
True to their Finnish heritage, they do everything the hard way; even though it is the most demanding grain to distill, they only work with 100% whole-grain rye. In addition to the intense flavor of Finnish rye, their award-winning gins contain local wild botanicals foraged from right outside the distillery, contributing to the recognisable and unique flavour.
