Stauning Whisky Launches in Illinois

Stauning, the award-winning Danish whisky, announces Illinois launch with exclusive tasting and listening events in Chicago, as we continues our US expansion.

To mark the launch, Stauning hosted a series of exclusive tasting and listening events in the heart of Chicago at BIÂN and Dorians with founder Alex Munch. This exciting launch marked an important milestone and follows the success of Stauning's launch into the US market.


A unique experience.

Guests attending the events had a unique opportunity to sample Stauning’s exceptional rye whisky portfolio in an exclusive tasting with Alex Munch himself, exploring the stories and passion that drive Stauning’s outstanding distillery practises. The event also hosted guided talks uncovering the sounds and soul of Denmark’s whisky-making traditions and what led Stauning to become the award-winning brand it is today.


Two Destinations. Similar Bonds.

Stauning chose to launch into Illinois due to its historical and cultural ties to Denmark, with Chicago in particular home to many Danish-Americans. The vibrant Danish community has significantly contributed to the city’s cultural mosaic, with the two destinations showcasing similar architectural bonds and culinary excellence. Amongst everything they also share similar values, championing community, sustainability and innovation – making the partnership between Stauning and Illinois the perfect match.

Alex Munch, co-founder of Stauning says: “Chicago is not just a city; it's a tapestry of history, culture, and innovation that resonates deeply with our Danish roots. As we introduce Stauning Whisky to this magnificent city, it feels like a homecoming. We're not just sharing our rye; we're blending our stories, passions, and traditions with the rich legacy of Chicago. We couldn't be happier to embark on this journey here."
