Discover now the new SLYRS Bavarian RYE Whisky
After several years of development, refinements and a three year maturity we are finally able to introduce: SLYRS 1st Bavarian RYE Whisky.
For the first time SLYRS whisky enters a new terrain with a whisky based on rye. Discover this new SLYRS whisky specialty.
Bavarian RYE with regional ingredients
At SLYRS collaborate experienced distillers and use high quality equipment and excellent barrels to create small, exclusive batches. The specialist brew master Philip Zollner created the one of a kind SLYRS Bavarian RYE with local Bavarian ingredients, strong rye, fresh barley and fine wheat. Our distillers use for this outstanding SLYRS the fresh mountain water from the region of Schliersee.
More than 300 years of experience in one glass of whisky
Since more than 300 years the raw form of whisky is distilled in the USA. The Rye was a specialty of the Northeast. This tradition still exists in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana and some other states and some of the world`s best Rye whiskies come from this region. To get to know to this culture our master distillers Hans Kemenater and SLYRS Co-founder Anton Stetter travelled several weeks to the places of origin of Rye Whisky and tried the best versions. They met farmers and distillers and visited distilleries to exchange their experiences. All this know-how is part of the new recipe of SLYRS Bavarian RYE and was led by Philip Zollner.
3 years mature for this very special moment
After multiple tries, tastings and analysis our Bavarian RYE Mashbill was ready to get distilled in with the Pot-Still method for the 1st time. Philip Zollner and team spent several night shifts to get this whisky to perfectionism. But after they completed the 1st batch the distillation needs to mature for another three years in a Crocodile Toasted Oak Cask to reach its perfection. The result was worth the wait: the new SLYRS Bavarian RYE is a fixed part of the SLYRS family. We love our SLYRS Bavarian RYE Whisky and want every bottle to be a small masterpiece.
How does the new SLYRS Bavarian RYE Whisky taste?
The taste of our new RYE has a huge variety of notes and aromas. The “Bayerische Urkorn” rye gives the whisky a very mild taste. The sweet rye malt ist he main note and gets refined with a comfortable barley- and wheat-bouquet.
Fruity notes are dominating and underlined with a hint of cinnamon. The result is fresh, but still extraordinary and a true exploration for all whisky lovers. Who prefers his whisky in a cocktail or on the rocks, will find the right choice for warm summer nights in the SLYRS RYE Whisky.
