FACC Minnesota: Kyrö Distillery Company

Kyrö Distillery Company and Finnish American Chamber of Commerce Minnesota cordially invite you and your friends to come and toast the launch of Kyrö in Minnesota!


Taking account Kyrö's founding story, there is absolutely no better location for the launch event than Hewing Hotel Rooftop Spa Pool and Sauna.

Like many great ideas (and half of the Finnish population), the idea for Kyrö Distillery Company was conceived in a sauna by a group of friends with a shared love of rye whisky. 

The obvious question on everybody’s lips was why hasn’t anybody made a Finnish rye whisky, especially given the fact that Finns consume six times more rye than the world average and rye bread is the official national dish! From there the idea grew and before long, our distillery found a perfect home in an old dairy in the Finnish village of Isokyrö.

After some gentle renovations, stills were first heated up in 2014 and we now sell our products in dozens of countries around the world. Kyrö is proud to be the world’s northern most gin and whisky distillery producing the finest single malt rye whisky and rye gin.
