Stauning Smoke is a mildly smoked single malt whisky made exclusively from local Danish ingredients. It's malted on open floors and smoked over locally harvested peat and heather found in the landscape surrounding Stauning. Double-distilled in smallopen-fire pot stills. It spends 5-6 years maturing in a mix of 1st Fill bourbon casks, 1st Fill Madeira casks, 1st Fill Jamaica Rum casks and Virgin American Oak casks.

The result is an elegant and refined whisky with a gentle smoky taste and a complex character that oozes of the dunes, the heath and the wind by the North Sea. This is a thoroughbred terroir whisky that's designed to gently blow you away.

Stauning blend the peat with dried heather harvested from the heathland by Ringkøbing Fjord. The heather provides the whisky with a mild and aromatic smoky fragrance. Peat is a thousands of years old vegetation that has been compressed into compact layers that can be burned as fuel. In whisky-making, peat is used for its fragrant smoke, rather than for heat. The peat gets its character from the landscape composing it. That's why Stauning only uses peat from local bogs.

Stauning Smoke is a combination of buzzing bees and the heather of moorland in a bottle: A gentle bonfire smoke blends with elegant notes of citrus and honey. In the mouth, the rich taste of tobacco, nuts, vanilla and fresh herbs open like a flower.

Being unfiltered and not chill-filtered some residue may appear in the bottle.
