Wanderlust and Love of Whisky

Our love of Scotland and Scotch whisky are a major source of inspiration when we make our own organic whisky. But that does not restrict us. We create our own adventure. That applies to both the whisky and all the other types of spirit we produce.

We create our whisky with great respect for traditions…

But that does not mean we do not also love innovating in our endeavours to create delectable whisky. This is particularly reflected in our Adventurous Spirit range, in which we attempt to make whisky as it was never made before. No two tappings are the same, and only our very special casks will become part of this range. The range features our Barely Legal whisky, which was soon ready in two Portuguese STR wine casks before being transformed into a ‘real whisky’ in a really old 1st fill Oloroso sherry cask. Then there is our Houdini Water. At 73.1%, it is our strongest-ever whisky. We do not always abide by the rules of the past when it comes to the definition of whisky. What does fascinate us, however, is the future of whisky and what it can be.


Our Isle of Fionia range features the more traditional whiskies. But that does not mean they are dull. Far from it. Take, for example, our Ardor Danish Oak - a beautiful organic whisky, boosted in Danish oak casks, which we made ourselves from ancient oak trees felled at Erholm Manor on the island of Funen. There is also our Ardor Isle of Fionia. Featuring wonderful tasting notes of vanilla and almond and, it has won several medals in highly-regarded international spirit competitions.


All our whiskies are 100% organic and distilled at Nyborg Destilleri. None of our products are chill filtered.   

Local organic barley malt for our whisky

In early March 2020 we started using local barley malt for our whisky production. The barley is grown in the fields of Holckenhavn Castle on East Funen, delivered by Rosilde Højgård and malted at the Sophus Fuglsang Malting Plant in Haderslev.

An agreement between our distillery, Rosilde Højgård and Fuglsang makes this local ‘barley malt adventure’ possible. Rosilde Højgård delivers the barley to Fuglsang, where it is malted. They then provide us with the finest organic Funen barley malt to make wonderful organic whisky for you.


Rosilde Højgård is located between Nyborg and Ørbæk. They have been farming since 1978. Today they have 650 hectares of field, 450 of which are at Holckenhavn Castle, where they have been farming organically since 2016.

Hall of Fame

We create many whiskies, which are so special that we only make them once. They belong to our Adventurous Spirit Range, in which no two bottlings are ever the same. Explore our special whiskies in the gallery below. Please note that all the whiskies are now sold out and no longer made.
