Stauning Whisky

Three Is a Crowd.
Nine Is Magic.


The Dieline Feature

Denmark is famous for many things. Whisky isn’t one of them. Until now. Driven by curiosity and a love for whisky, nine friends got together in 2005. They wanted to show that a high-quality whisky could be produced in Denmark, using only traditional in-house methods. Nine months later, Stauning Whisky was born.

Using methods long lost to industrialization, Stauning Whisky distils their golden drops using floor malting, direct fire, and exclusively local raw materials. Their hard work is paying off, and recently they have brought international attention to their one-of-a-kind whisky. They have proven to each other, and the world, that their locally made product can stand up against the best in the world.

For every batch, and with every drink, the process is refined. New possibilities are explored, people talk, excitement spreads, audiences grow. From now on, the next batch will be presented in a new bottle and an updated identity, telling a tale of nine friends, who followed their dreams and made the impossible happen.

The new design has won “Best Range Design” at the 2021 World Whiskies Awards, and gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition’s Packaging Design Competition 2021. Today, they are sold in 12 markets, including the US, and they have recently secured a multi-million dollar investment from Diageo. The expansion to the rest of the world is well underway.

“We wanted to tell the story of Stauning Whisky in a completely new way. Being a Danish whisky from the west coast is one of the things which truly sets us apart from the rest. The new bottles reflect who we are better than ever, and rightfully complement the whisky within.”
