Stauning Danish Whisky
Stauning sits on the West Coast of Denmark facing the North Sea. It is quiet farm community of rolling hills dotted with seated moors. But if you sailed a boat directly west from there you would sail directly into the Firth of Forth with Edinburgh on your left. When it comes to climate, Stauning has more in common with the Highlands of Scotland that Copenhagen. And in 2005, this is where nine friends set up shop to learn the craft if making whisky with two small pot stills in an old abandoned butchery surrounded by rolling hills of grain. What started as a hobby is now an acclaimed passion project with six core editions. They even malt their own grain. Welcome to Stauning Danish Whisky.
