Stauning Art Series: Four single casks released

Art from Denmark – inside of the bottle and outside

 

With four editions of a new series of whiskies, the Danish Stauning Distillery presents art for the palate and for the eye: Stauning cooperated with two Danish artists for these special editions of rye whisky.

Heads, Hearts and Tails

Tattoo artist Thit is already known to Stauning fans as an illustrator for the Research Series. For the design of the labels for this Art Series, she chose animals from the Danish west coast, which symbolise the distilling process: "Heads, Hearts and Tails" - foreshot, middlecut and feints. The abstract illustration created by the artist Martin Askholm, who studies at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, is also about this theme.

The liquid art in the bottles is Stauning Rye Whisky made from 49% barley and 51% rye malt, which was given a finish in special casks. For these Art Editions, a Barbados rum cask, a Madeira wine cask and two casks that previously contained - read and be amazed - Canadian maple syrup were selected. The single cask editions were specially bottled for Kirsch Import and will be released at a recommended retail price of 74.90 Euros on the German market. These are 0.7 liter bottles, the whisky is unchill filtered, uncoloured and bottled at cask strength.
