Cocktail Recipes: Kyrö Edition

The idea for Kyrö Distillery Company, an all-rye distillery from Finland, was born in a classic Finnish way – with a group of friends enjoying a sauna and drinking rye whisky. In May 2012 five friends were enjoying rye whisky in a sauna when they tumbled on the topic of rye whiskey production in Finland. They started to wonder why there is not a rye whisky distillery in Finland and thought that there should most certainly be one. Surprisingly, the idea of starting their own distillery still seemed like a really good one the following day, and just like that, from dreaming to daring, the journey of Kyrö began. Today the distillery has grown from a wild dream to a craft powerhouse with skill and capacity — and high-quality spirits, always made from 100% Finnish rye.

We are bringing you a couple of easy classic cocktail recipes to level up your host party nights, toast to good moments, or simply enjoy a glass of your favorite cocktail in the comfort of your own home. All of the recipes are made with Kyrö Distillery spirits available in our webshop.

    100 ml Fever-Tree tonic water
    A twig of rosemary
    Cranberries
     Lots of ice
