Stauning Danish Whisky
Big skies, moorland and 200 kilometres of shifting dunes
A remote village on the West Coast of Denmark, nine friends (a doctor, a butcher, a teacher, a helicopter pilot and four engineers), two small pot stills and an old butchery.
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. What could possibly go wrong?
