In a world brimming with whisky choices, carving out a niche requires more than just exceptional taste – it demands a story, a sense of place, and a touch of magic. Stauning, the award-winning distillery nestled on the picturesque west coast of Denmark, has concocted just that with its latest creation, HØST.

HØST, meaning ‘harvest’ in Danish, perfectly captures the essence of the season that brings life to the whisky’s grains. This new addition to Stauning’s lineup is a tribute to the beautiful bond between the Danish landscape and the centuries-old traditions of rye and barley farming.

So, what makes HØST stand out in a crowded market? It’s all about Danish heritage and meticulous craftsmanship. Rooted in the fertile soil of the West Coast, HØST is a sensory delight. Aged in a mix of bourbon, heavily charred new American white oak, and port barrique casks, it offers a balanced bouquet of floral and fruity notes. You’ll catch hints of vanilla, beeswax, and citrus on the nose, followed by tastes of meadow honey, toffee, apple, and red berries, finishing with a smooth blend of cinnamon, oak, and subtle spice.

HØST is a testament to Stauning’s commitment to traditional methods and sustainability. Every grain used is locally sourced and floor-malted in-house –n a rare and time-honoured practice. This grain-to-glass approach means each bottle of HØST is a true reflection of its Danish roots, celebrating not just the whisky, but the dedication and connection to nature behind its creation.

Whether you’re new to whisky or a seasoned connoisseur, pour yourself a glass of HØST and toast to the unique, vibrant spirit of Denmark.

HØST is available to purchase from Selfridges, Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange for £45 per bottle. More information here
