History of the amazement distillery

Stauning Distillery, one of Denmark's leading distilleries, has a long and eventful history. The distillery was founded in 2005 by nine Danish friends who shared a common passion for whiskey and craftsmanship. The group faced a major challenge - there was no long tradition of Danish whiskeys like those found in other parts of Europe and North America.

Undeterred by the lack of tradition, the distillery began to develop innovative methods of making whiskey that made the most of Danish ingredients and the Nordic environment. The distillery only uses local ingredients such as Danish barley, rye and water from nearby Himmelbjerget. In addition, it uses a unique maturation method in which the barrels are stored outdoors and exposed to various weather conditions.
