Stauning Smoke tastes like a hot summerâ€™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.
Whoâ€™s it For?
Stauning appeals to curious whisky drinkers on the hunt for innovation in whisky making and new flavour experiences. They are open minded and explore all expressions of whisky. They are just as happy tasting their fine whisky in an expertly made cocktail.
Peat is thousands of years old dead plants and vegetation compressed into compact layers that â€“ when dried â€“ can be burned as fuel. The peat gets its character from the landscape composing it. Thatâ€™s why Stauning only uses peat from local bogs.
We blend the peat with dried heather harvested from the heathland by RingkÃ¸bing Fjord. The heather provides the whisky with a mild and aromatic smoky fragrance.
Stauning Smoke has aged five years on a mix of 1st Fill bourbon-casks, 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry-casks and virgin American oak casks.
