As of 2024, Host (pronounced “hurst”), is the latest addition to Stauning's portfolio. The blend of rye and single malt is named ‘harvest’ in honour of the Danish landscape and the country’s grains which are 100% floor malted and kiln dried at the distillery. Alex Munch, one of Stauning’s founders, comments: “Each harvest, farmers give over a portion of their fields to wildflowers, adding a riot of colour to the stretches of grains that carpet the land. We created HØST to celebrate the closeness of nature and nurture, the deliberate rye and barley hand-in-hand with the sudden colour of wildflowers, just as our modern, sustainable distillery sits alongside acres of green fields.”

Matured on-site in heavily charred new American oak and first-fill Port barriques, this well-balanced dram is perfect for beginners: Easy on entry and easy to the last with a blended malt kind of feel and a fruit bread character throughout. Not outstanding but no quibbles either. Just extremely drinkable whisky. Tasted from a 15ml sample. 40.5% Alc./Vol.
