With the help of the Alpenbahnen Spitzingsee and a ski lift, they transported around 50 specially selected people Whiskybarrels at an altitude of 1501 meters, on the top of the Stümpfling mountain. There is the unique SLYRS high camp. the SLYRS Mountain Edition matured in it for 5 years until its completion.
taste the mountain air
"The SLYRS High Camp is an absolutely exceptional camp location. Surrounded by the purest Bavarian mountain air and with its very own microclimate,” says Managing Director Hans Kemenater. There are extreme temperature fluctuations between summer and winter, sometimes up to 60 degrees. They influence the maturing process and thus also the taste of the new Mountain Edition. The result is “a very powerful single malt Whisky. It captures the rough mountain climate and reflects it in a clear, intense taste and special flavor - a real Bavarian Highlander."
