From the distillery website: A remote village on the West Coast of Denmark, nine friends (a doctor, a chef, a butcher, a teacher, a helicopter pilot, and four engineers), two small pot stills, and an old butchery, and the brand was founded.

The founders of Stauning Whisky didn’t have much when they started out in 2005. Least of all, any knowledge of whisky-making, but they shared passion, curiosity, and the will to experiment and create. However, they had the land around them: The wind, the sea, the fields, the heather, and the peat. And some of Denmark’s finest water.


Stauning Smoke tastes like a hot summer’s day on the moor; a mildly smoked single malt whisky made from pure West Jutland malt barley smoked over locally harvested peat and heather. A thoroughbred terroir whisky that gently will blow you away. Stauning Smoke is the quintessence of the distillery’s innovative New Nordic-whisky philosophy: Made from pure local ingredients, malted on open floors, smoked over peat and heather found in the landscape surrounding Stauning, double-distilled in small flame-heated pot stills and finally aged on 1st Fill wine and spirits casks. The result is an elegant and refined whisky with a gentle smoky taste and a complex character that oozes of the dunes, the heath and the wind by the North Sea.
