The ‘Imperial’ barley used for this whisky adds a unique richness and green citrus flavours.

The whisky has picked up pleasant aromas of warm spice, vanilla, honey and fresh oak from ageing in casks that previously held our spelt-rye whisky as well as vanilla and fresh oak from our bourbon casks.

Bottled at a mere 47.3% vol., the result is a smooth, spicy and sweet whisky, with a summery aroma like fresh apples and vanilla.

101 Craft and World Whiskies to Try Before You Die

Kornmod has previously won the Liquid Gold Award in The Whisky Bible and was named one of the 101 whiskies you must taste before you die by Ion Buxton.

Our own casks

This whisky is aged in casks previously used to mature our Spelt-Rye. This brings the spicy touch of the rye together with the sweetness of vanilla.

The old Imperial barley

'Kornmod' is created from grain varieties that are no longer common in Danish fields. In ancient times, they were widespread, but disappeared in flavour of higher-yielding varieties. We have rediscovered them because they contribute a flavour you don't get with modern varieties.
