The all rye Finnish spirits makers’ gluten and lactose-free liquor ‘Dairy Cream’ and Kyrö Gin are now available at Waitrose.
The luxury taste of Finland is now merely a jaunt to the supermarket away as Kyrö Distillery Company’s ‘Dairy Cream’ and ‘Kyrö Gin’ arrive at Waitrose stores around the UK. The all-rye distillery operates from Isokyrö, a small town in western Finland, bringing rural, natural sensibilities to its wholesome blend of ingredients.
Combining local milk and cream with their own unique rye spirit into a rich dream of a winter beverage is the brand’s ‘Dairy Cream’. The liquor, free of lactose and gluten rejects artificial flavours and colour, making for an authentic taste of Finland suitable for as many tastes as possible. Blending Kyrö malt rye whiskey with elements of liquorice and chocolate, plus hints of toffee, salt and wild botanicals, a 500ml bottle sets you back only £19.95, making it kind on your pockets as well as your senses.
The Kyrö Gin, also now resident on Waitrose shelves, was enjoyed recently by guests at Wonderland’s Autumn/Fall 2022 issue launch party. The signature product from the distiller suffuses 100% rye with wild botanicals, making for a balmy summer night accompaniment, or of course, a party-pleaser on fun nights-in all year-round.
Kyrö’s place on Waitrose shelves is the culmination of hard graft for the people behind the business. “We are very proud of our achievements, especially with our rapid growth here in the UK,” says co-founder Miika Lipiäinen. “This is our first listing in a major UK retailer and is a huge moment for us as a brand. We’re looking forward to seeing how we continue to grow over the next few years.”
