In the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC), Finnish whiskeys again received several awards.

Among Kyrö Distillery Company’s whiskeys, Kyrö Malt rye malt whiskey, alder-smoked Kyrö Wood Smoke, and as-yet-unreleased, peat-smoked Kyrö Peat Smoke each won silver, says Kyrö’s press release.

Kyrö Peat Smoke will be released later this year as part of the Kyröfest festival, which will take place again on the grounds of the distillery in August.

Kyrö Distillery Company has also made it two years in a row to the list of the world’s most prestigious whiskey distilleries as the only continental European distillery. In 2022, Kyrö was ranked 29th.

Lammin Sahti Oy’s Spirit Of Sahti Single Cask Whisk and Teerenpeli Brewery & Distillery’s 10 YO Single Malt Whiskey and Palo Peated Sherry Single Malt Whiskey won bronze.

Founded in 1969, the IWSC is one of the world’s most prestigious competitions in the alcohol industry.
