The idea for Kyrö Distillery Company, an all-rye distillery from Finland, was born in a classic Finnish way – with a group of friends enjoying a sauna and drinking rye whisky. Wondering why there hadn't been a Finnish rye whisky distillery despite the grain's wide-spread popularity, they decided to take matters in their own hands. Choosing an old dairy as Kyrö's home, their beginnings were modest. The first fermentation actually took place in the head distiller's childhood home while his parents were on vacation and the mush then needed to be transferred to a craft whisky distillery hundreds of kilometers away to undergo the first distillation.

Despite the initial improvising, it wasn't long until Kyrö received critical acclaim after smuggling some samples to the Whisky Show in London. In 2014, the stills at the old dairy were heated up for the first time and the first drinks were served at a pop-up bar in Helsinki. Kyrö began crafting gin as well and the relatively unknown distillery experienced explosive growth after their Kyrö Gin (formerly known as Napue) was selected as "The World’s Best Gin for Gin&Tonic" at IWCS 2015. It immediately sold out and the rest is history. Today, Kyrö is a craft powerhouse possessing experience, knowledge and capacities that remains loyal to Finnish rye despite it being a notoriously demanding grain to distill. Kyrö's portfolio includes whisky, gin and liqueur as well as special releases, all made from 100% Finnish rye grain.

Inspired by fierce Finnish weather, Kyrö Dark Gin is the perfect union of 100% Finnish wholegrain rye with 17 spices and botanicals. It spends 3-12 months in American oak barrels and this award-winning gin is designed to offer you shelter and shield you in times of storms (literal and metaphorical storms). Summer meadow on the nose and honey, orange and pepper with hints of flower fields on the palate, Kyrö Dark Gin will warm you up or cool you down, depending on what you’re seeking in the moment. Kyrö recommends enjoying it hot or cold with cloudy apple juice, cinnamon and a slice of fresh apple.
