A real Bavarian with Iro-Scottish roots

The name SLYRS is Gaelic and has Iro-Scottish roots. But SLYRS is Bavarian through and through. Because in the year 779 five monks from Ireland and Scotland founded a monastery in the Bavarian wasteland of Schliersee. Adalung, Hiltupalt, Kerpalt, Antonius and Otakir name this monastery SLYRS, correctly pronounced SCHLIERS.

The monastery SLYRS has given its name to the entire Schliersee region over the centuries - and 1220 years later also a very special Upper Bavarian single malt Whisky.

SLYRS Distillery Monks

Pioneer with innovative spirit

It all started with a bet, back in 1994: the trained brewer and master distiller Florian Stetter went on a study trip to Scotland with his master colleagues. He is surprised by the similarities he discovers with his homeland of Upper Bavaria: mountains, clear water and wonderfully pure air.

In addition, there is the sometimes challenging stubbornness of the Scots, which strikes him as very Bavarian, a dialect that is difficult to pronounce and a pronounced tendency towards Free Stateism. Even the Scottish national costume, the kilt, seems just as peculiar to him as the Bavarian lederhosen.

So much Scottish-Bavarian crossover and his visits to the world-famous distilleries in the Speyside region inspire Florian Stetter to envision a single malt from Upper Bavaria Whisky to manufacture. He and his colleagues bet a crate of wheat beer that you can also get first-class beer in Upper Bavaria Whisky can burn – and he wins! A little later, in the parental distillery Lantenhammer Whisky burned. With that she starts SLYRS But first the story.

SLYRS - One from here

Here at Schliersee in Upper Bavaria, where the streams are still clear, the meadows are still lush green and the mountain peaks are so high, it seems as if they were sticking straight through the blue arch of the sky, right here SLYRS At home.

This homeland is inseparable from that SLYRS Whisky and linked to our philosophy:
