World Whisky Day is fast approaching on Saturday the 19th May 2018.
As part of the build up I’m featuring a series of blogs – both old and new – over the next month focusing on a country from each letter of the alphabet – if possible – that makes whisky.
Today is D for Danish Whisky.
D is also for my downfall as I haven’t actually got round to tasting any of the fabulous whiskies that are made in Denmark.
More famous for it’s bacon than whisky – Denmark has around 14 distilleries either already producing whisky – or about to – according to the excellent Nordic Distillery Map by blogger Whisky Saga which you can view here.
Stauning Whisky would be the most recognised of these distilleries – and one I’d like to get my hands on – as it regularly wins awards and happens to be a style I particularly enjoy – rye!
A return trip to Copenhagen might be in order. Especially as there is a distillery in the town handily named Copenhagen Distillery.
And another not too far away by the name of Braunstein.
It’s about time I got out a bit more!
I’d like to thank Stauning Whisky for the use of their photo in this blog.
