Napue | Rye Gin
The idea for Kyrö Distillery Company was conceived in a sauna by a group of Finnish friends with a shared love of rye whisky. As rye bread is the official national dish of Finland and Finns consume six times more rye than the world average, Kyrö Distillery Company produces the finest single malt rye whisky and rye gin in an old dairy in the Finnish village of Isokyrö.
True to Kyrö Distillery Company’s Finnish heritage the gin is made with 100% whole-grain rye, which is the most demanding grain to distill. In addition to the intense flavour of Finnish rye, their award winning gin contains local wild botanicals foraged from right outside the distillery. Warm spice from the rye is combined with twelve dry and four freshly distilled botanicals, creating a uniquely Finnish flavour.
The rye-based Napue gin boasts locally foraged fresh botanicals, including sea buckthorn, cranberries and birch leaves. The distinct fragrance and flavour of an early morning, misty Finnish meadow is instantly recognisable. Napue gin was voted as “The World’s Best Gin for Gin & Tonic” by the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) in 2015 and in 2016 Napue won the gold medal in the San Francisco World Spirit Competition premium gin-series.
