Kyrö Distillery / Napue Rye Gin / 750mL
Alcohol by volume: 46.3%
Our rye-based (formerly called Napue) gin boasts locally foraged fresh botanicals, including sea buckthorn, cranberries and birch leaves. The distinct fragrance and flavor of an early morning, misty Finnish meadow is instantly recognizable. Our gin was voted as “The World’s Best Gin for Gin & Tonic” by the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) in 2015 and in 2016 Napue won the gold medal in the San Francisco World Spirit Competition premium gin-series. Enjoy your Napue Gin & Tonic with plenty of ice, a twig of rosemary, a few cranberries and your favorite tonic water.
Herbal and sweet, essential oils of meadowsweet and gentle citrus on the nose. Full bodied herbal flavour ending with notes of pepper of rye on the tongue.
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.
We are proud to be the world’s northern most gin and whisky distillery producing the finest single malt rye whisky and rye gin.
