Stauning get top marks in the Whisky Bible

Whisky that make life worth living. The words can Stauning Whisky now put on three different bottlings. In the 2014 edition of the Whisky Bible, where the renowned whisky expert Jim Murray judge whiskies from around the world, there are top marks for more Stauning-bottlings. This shows that Stauning whisky can be compared with the world’s very best.

This time it’s a Young Rye (made on Danish rye) and the smoked version of the distillery’s single malt that gets 94.5 points out of 100 – a review that triggers the Whisky Bible Liquid Gold Award. Another Young Rye receives 92 points, while the non- smoked single malt gets 85 points. Two special editions that has matured in ex sherry casks have got 93 and 85 points. In contrast, a third Young Rye “only” got 77 points.

We are very, very proud of this year’s ratings. To get so good ratings from a man who has tasted whiskies from around the world, is something we can live high on the long, says Alex Munch, who is one of the nine friends who together started Stauning Whisky.

That we for the first time is down to 77 points shows that we still have a lot to learn. And as it says in the description, it is not easy to make good whisky. It’s still a fantastic bottle of rye, but this one stands out among all the other bottles Young Rye in Jim Murray’s rating. This also shows that Jim Murray tells his honest opinion – if you make a whisky that does not live up to his expectations, you get to know.

This years Whisky Bible has been eagerly awaited in Stauning. At the same time it is also a good opportunity to look back on the past year, which has seen several special editions.

We are especially very happy with the 93 points for the smoked single malt that has matured in Oloroso sherry casks, usually Jim Murray doesn’t like to mix smoke and sherry. But with this one he had to surrender, says Alex Munch.

Proud to make this post. Check out @embassyoforiginals A new exciting project. First pop-up was today in Aarhus in Denmark.

Today we make it official. We are originals. 
You have to be a bit crazy to build craft cocktail bar in four 20 foot shipping containers and bring them across the oceans. But nevertheless that’s what we do. We believe we have something to show the world.

THE EMBASSY is a collaboration started by Stauning Whisky and Njord Gin. An opportunity for people to taste the value of our carefully crafted and distinctive spirit – neat and combined with other quality products in exquisite cocktails. 
Our containers are ready for international waters in 2018. In 2017, we will bring The Embassy to a few great events in Denmark – starting with two fine and quite new festivals in the middle of Denmark: Heartland and Tinderbox. 
To conquer the taste buds and senses of our guests and give them an extraordinary pop-up experience, we have teamed up with dedicated Danish companies within furniture, architecture, clothing, sound, glassware, gastronomy – and more to come. These select partners are all part of a long tradition of Danish quality.

Already this weekend, a little cocktail pretaste is possible at  www.romwhiskyfestival.dk where we serve two classic cocktails with a twist:

Boulevargroni: Stauning Young Rye, Njord Sun & Citrus, Belsazar Vermouth, Campari

Old Fashioned: Njord Barrel Aged (Matured 1 year in Stauning Casks), Angustora Bitters 
Becoming an embassy for Danish taste and originality is a big task and a long term project. But through small steps and navigation by the brightest stars on the Northern hemisphere we will reach our destination. Just like our Norse ancestors did when they sailed the oceans to conquer.

Ideas for collaborations or inspirational thoughts? Do not hesitate to write us at originals@theembassy.dk
