At Stauning Whisky, our distinctly Danish approach to whisky is deeply rooted in the principles that have long defined the quality and beauty of Danish things —

simplicity, being close to nature, craftsmanship, and an unwavering commitment to quality. Each grain of rye and barley used to create our whisky, nurtured in the rich Danish soil for over two millennia, is a testament to our dedication to tradition and our reverence for the land that sustains us.

Our whisky is a product of intention and design.

Every step of our process, from the traditional floor malting through the double distillation in small direct-fired copper pot stills to the gentle ageing in carefully selected casks, is carried out with meticulous attention to detail. This is where craftsmanship transcends the ordinary and becomes an art form. 

Stauning's 100% floor malted approach and grain-to-glass control represent a deliberate and designed process that celebrates the nuances of genuine Danish whisky.

Floor malting is a rare traditional method of malting grains in small batches that allows for greater control of the grain, delivering authentic character and depth of flavour, and transferring the elegance and beauty of the Danish West Coast to the whisky. This is lost practice in most places and very few distilleries floor malt 100% of their grains.

Stauning’s spirit is double distilled in small direct fired copper pot stills, 24 of them.

The direct fire contact helps produce more Maillard reaction – the process which turns sugars and proteins into countless complex flavours. This means we have fresh bright rich fruity and floral new make spirit. When matured in a selection of fresh oak casks our whisky delivers depth of character and elegance.

Located in the flat and serene landscape of West Coast Denmark - the place that many Danes come to unwind and get back to nature -

Stauning was founded in 2005 by a collective of nine friends setting out to make a difference and bring whisky distilling back to Denmark. They focused on traditional production methods, such as floor-malting of the local rye and barley grains and using direct fire to heat the small stills, to create whisky reflecting the Danish ethos. What they created was a purpose-built distillery that embodies modern Danish design and a thoughtfully designed production process. Stauning whisky offers a stripped-back, pure experience, removing the unnecessary and focusing on what truly matters.
