The Finland based Kyrö Distillery Company, has today announced the UK launch of its Malt Rye Whisky.

Kyrö Malt Rye Whisky (47.2% ABV) which has been double pot distilled, has been made using 100% malted Finnish wholegrain rye, and matured in American white oak barrels.

This new release from the all rye distillery, which first fired up its stills in 2014, lends from both Scottish and American whisky traditions, with its 100% wholegrain rye, and its distillation in Scottish style pot stills.

Kyrö Malt Rye Whisky, is said to deliver notes of vanilla, caramel and dried fruits on the nose, followed by notes of sweet rye bread, honey, wild berries and pepper on the palate.

Commenting on the whisky, Kalle Valkonen, Head Distiller at the Kyrö Distillery Company, said: “You never know how the reaction is going to be when you do things differently in a traditional industry such as whisky. We’re not from Scotland and we don’t play golf. Why should we make whisky the same way it’s done there? Finland might not have much whisky tradition. But we know our rye and grow it to be extremely delicious”.

Kyrö Malt Rye Whisky, will be available later this month from specialist retailers including Master of Malt, for a RRP of £44.95 – 50cl.
