Slyrs

   

Slyrs distillery is located in Schliersee, Bavaria, Germany and was founded by Florian Stetter, the owner of Lantenhammer distillery more famously known for traditional German schnapps.

In the mid-1990's he decided to try and create a whisky for his portfolio, the result, which was first bottled in 1999 is the 3 year old, annual limited release called Slyrs. He uses new, American white Oak 225 litre casks.

From 2015 he aims to add a 12y to the portfolio, alongside the annual 3y release.
