  1. DanishDistilled scored this distillery 86 points Expert Senior

    Went on a guided tour with co-owner Peter Fröhlich, who is just an outstanding guy!

    The distillery is located on the island of Ærø in the islands main town Ærøskøbing. It is situated in a backyard next to the town square with the still house being located in a renovated laundry house from the 1800's.

    Ærø Whisky use a Müller Column still like a number of other Danish distilleries. They have their own small floor maltings (about 10 sqm. floor) and import the rest from Bryggeriet Refsvindinge. The barley for the whisky is grown 4 km from the distillery and gives the whisky a very unique taste, that is also present in the local beer.

    Ærø Whisky normally only use 1st fill Bourbon and 1st fill Olorosso casks while bottling their whiskies at 48%. They have also experimented with Danish Oak casks, built from a tree, that was cut down in Ærøskøbings center. Very local and very interesting! Will follow with great interest!
