    Mangrove adds Danish whisky Stauning HØST to its portfolio

    Recognising the production of rye and barley around its distillery, Danish whisky producer Stauning has produced a new expression, HØST. Adding to their wide portfolio of award-winning world whiskies, Mangrove Global will distribute HØST in the UK.

    Meaning “Harvest” in Danish, HØST honours the natural beauty of the West Denmark landscape and the season that provides the grains essential to these unique and refined Danish whiskies. A combination of rye and single malt, HØST has been designed as an introduction to the Stauning portfolio with an RSP at £45.

    HØST is delicate, smooth and balanced – the perfect sipping whisky for beginners and connoisseurs alike. The innovative whisky is aged in first-fill bourbon and heavily charred new American white oak casks before being finished in first-fill port barrique casks, resulting in a fruit-forward spirit with floral undertones. On the nose, HØST delivers notes of vanilla, beeswax and citrus followed by meadow honey, toffee, apple, and red berries on the palate, with a syrupy cinnamon, oak and subtle spice finish.

    “Stauning whiskies have been part of the Mangrove portfolio for many years and have developed a cult following in both on and off trade,” said Stef Holt, Curator of Mangrove’s World Whisky portfolio. “It is recognised as a brand that speaks of its origins and its terroir. HØST is a delicious new whisky which is perfect for new drinkers and connoisseurs alike.”

    For centuries, the cultivation of rye and barley has played a crucial role in the way of life on the West Coast of Denmark. The deep-rooted connection to the land can be seen in the people, places and produce of the region. Stauning creates its whiskies using grain from the fields surrounding the distillery with each grain floor-malted in house – a process that few distilleries in the world still practise. Distillation takes place in 24 small copper pot stills which are direct-fired to create complex flavours, adding weight and character to the whisky.

    As part of the launch Stauning is running its first ever global cocktail competition – Stauning Drinks Kollektive – for bar tenders to create a new cocktail using one of the Stauning whiskies. The closing date is 4 June 2024 and UK bartenders are encouraged to enter – more details here.
