Stauning får topkarakterer i Whisky “Biblen”

Whisky, der gør livet værd at leve. De ord kan Stauning Whisky nu smykke hele tre forskellige aftapninger med. I 2014 udgaven af Whisky Bible, hvor den anerkendte whiskyekspert Jim Murray bedømmer whisky fra hele verden, er der topkarakterer til flere Stauning- aftapninger. Det viser, at Stauning whisky sagtens kan stå på samme hylde som verdens allerbedste.

Denne gang er det en Young Rye (lavet på dansk rug) og den røgede udgave af destilleriets single malt, der får 94,5 point ud af 100 – en bedømmelse, der udløser the Whisky Bible Liquid Gold Award. En anden Young Rye får 92 point, mens den ikke-røgede single malt får 85 point. To specialaftapninger, der har modnet på tidligere sherryfade har fået 93 og 85 point. Til gengæld har en tredje Young Rye ”kun” fået 77 point.

– Vi er meget, meget stolte af årets bedømmelser. At få så gode karakterer af en mand, der har smagt på whisky fra hele verden, er noget, vi kan leve højt på længe, siger Alex Munch, der er én af de 9 venner der sammen startede Stauning Whisky.

– At vi så for første gang også er nede på 77 point viser, at vi stadig har noget at lære. Som der står i beskrivelsen, så er det ikke nemt at lave god whisky. Det er stadig en fantastisk god flaske rye, men den her skiller sig altså ud blandt de andre flasker Young Rye i Jim Murrays bedømmelse. Det her viser også, at Jim Murray kommer med sin ærlige mening – laver man en aftapning, der ikke lever op til hans forventninger, så får man det at vide.

Årets Whisky Bible har været ventet med spænding i Stauning. At få produkterne bedømt af Jim Murray er som at gå til eksamen. Samtidig er det også en god anledning til at se tilbage på det seneste år, der har budt på flere specialaftapninger.

– Vi er faktisk særligt glade for de 93 point til den røgede single malt, der har ligget på Oloroso sherry-fad, for normalt bryder Jim Murray sig ikke om at blande røg og sherry. Men her har vi altså lavet en aftapning, hvor han må overgive sig, fortæller Alex Munch.

Selv om drengene fra Stauning Whisky nu kan gå rundt med brede smil den kommende tid, er der også alvor i bedømmelserne. De bliver brugt som hjælp og vejledning til at holde den høje kvalitet i produktionen.

Vores spændende whisky/ost projekt er nu en fysisk færdig realitet. Vildt! Og den smager fantastisk.

Og den smager fantastisk. Sidste år vandt Unika Mejeribrugets Gourmetpris for Sirius druknet i Stauning Whisky. (Lavet på Troldhede Mejeri). Sirius med Stauning Whisky er blevet døbt "Drunken Dog" og første batch på ialt 89 oste er nu klar! De første 15 oste blev sat til salg på på Unikas webshop i går ved midnat. DE ER NU UDSOLGT!!! Men der er også 37 oste i hver butik fra fredag d. 19. maj. Fredag d. 19 maj kan du møde os fra Stauning Whisky  i deres butikker fra kl. 14-18 i Klostergade (Århus) og 14-19 i Torvehallerne (KBH) ...og begrænset omfang købe Stauning Young Rye Whisky. (Arla Unika har været så fornuftige at gemme Rye whisky der tidligere har været til salg til denne dag). Det er et meget begrænset parti!!! Vil uddeler også smagsprøver af vores Rye Whisky.

Proud to make this post. Check out @embassyoforiginals A new exciting project. First pop-up was today in Aarhus in Denmark.

Today we make it official. We are originals. 
You have to be a bit crazy to build craft cocktail bar in four 20 foot shipping containers and bring them across the oceans. But nevertheless that’s what we do. We believe we have something to show the world.

THE EMBASSY is a collaboration started by Stauning Whisky and Njord Gin. An opportunity for people to taste the value of our carefully crafted and distinctive spirit – neat and combined with other quality products in exquisite cocktails. 
Our containers are ready for international waters in 2018. In 2017, we will bring The Embassy to a few great events in Denmark – starting with two fine and quite new festivals in the middle of Denmark: Heartland and Tinderbox. 
To conquer the taste buds and senses of our guests and give them an extraordinary pop-up experience, we have teamed up with dedicated Danish companies within furniture, architecture, clothing, sound, glassware, gastronomy – and more to come. These select partners are all part of a long tradition of Danish quality.

Already this weekend, a little cocktail pretaste is possible at  www.romwhiskyfestival.dk where we serve two classic cocktails with a twist:

Boulevargroni: Stauning Young Rye, Njord Sun & Citrus, Belsazar Vermouth, Campari

Old Fashioned: Njord Barrel Aged (Matured 1 year in Stauning Casks), Angustora Bitters 
Becoming an embassy for Danish taste and originality is a big task and a long term project. But through small steps and navigation by the brightest stars on the Northern hemisphere we will reach our destination. Just like our Norse ancestors did when they sailed the oceans to conquer.

Ideas for collaborations or inspirational thoughts? Do not hesitate to write us at originals@theembassy.dk
