Destilleriet Als Whisky

   

Destilleriet Als Danish Whisky

Als Distillery started as one of the first a collaboration with Henric from the distillery Spirit of Hven around the configuration of their large distiller. With his vast experience and medal winners, he became an indispensable partner. A 350L columnstill device was then ordered and it should be almost 5 months before the gentlemen in Als received it. Meanwhile, they started with a small American distillery, developed by the Stillz family in the southern states. The family has built distillers for many generations and annually produces a limited number of distillers.

Al's Distillery New Make

Their new make's journey begins long before distillation. Carefully selected Danish quality barley is being malted at the malt factory at Fuglsang in Haderslev after 150 years of experience and traditions. It is subsequently brewed for the finest "distiller's beer" they can use for the whiskey production at the Als distillery. In a slow heating process, the distillation is started on a copper boiler, and within 9 - 11 hours, the distillation is complete. The purest drops are allowed to pass through the rectification chambers. In the nose, the new make has a distinctly malted scent with sweet notes of caramel and honey. The heat from the liquor spreads rapidly in the mouth, however, without becoming uncomfortable. The distillate consumes the whole mouth in a pleasant way and it becomes clear to everyone that it has the potential to turn into something big.

The whiskey is stored for 39 months in selected Bourbon casks. Here it's expected to support the already existing caramel notes with oak and vanilla notes. The artist behind the painting on the front of our whiskey bottle is Thomas Eje. He is known for being part of a popular performing troupe, which since 1979 has spread joy among the Danes. Thomas was given a free assignment and after hearing the story of the collaboration with Fuglsang, he seized the chance to work with an abstract bird motif.

Thomas' own words for the picture:

"After thorough research with both Bourbon, Blended and Single Malt Whiskey, I came up with a visual expression that could best describe the enjoyment moment of consuming the noblest of drops. I am convinced that artistic freedom is not reserved exclusively for the artist himself."
