Kyrö Distillery began the same way as many other Finnish companies, as an idea in the sauna: why isn’t whiskey made from rye in Finland? The distillery found a home in an old dairy co-operative in Isokyrö, in the same building where Oltermann cheese was once made. The stills were turned on for the first time in 2014, and since then the distillery has won numerous international prizes and now sells its products in dozens of countries.
Kyrö Tourism Board is a distillery restaurant and cocktail bar operating in the same space as Kyrö Distillery Company. During open hours, visitors can join a distillery tour and tasting, as well as enjoy unique cocktails made from local ingredients. Groups can also order dinners of local cuisine prepared by Juurella restaurant through Kyrö Tourism Board and include a tasting, cocktail school and distillery tour. Live music for diverse tastes is also offered on the first Saturday of every month.
Kyrö Distillery is located in the municipality of Isokyrö, about 37 km from Seinäjoki. The easiest way to get there is in your own car.
