About SLYRS:

As a whisky pioneer from Upper Bavaria, SLYRS has been setting standards in whisky competence since 1999. Produced in the traditional way and matured to the highest quality in new casks of American white oak, SLYRS delights whisky lovers far beyond the borders of Germany with its incomparably mild, pleasantly malty character and its fruity aromas. Since 2007, the entire production process has been carried out in the specially built whisky distillery in Neuhaus am Schliersee - even the whisky mash is produced in-house. The exclusive assortment includes high-quality SLYRS Bavarian Single Malt Whiskies as well as whisky liqueurs, which combine the typical SLYRS taste with fine vanilla, herbal or chocolate notes. At the World Whiskys Awards, several SLYRS whiskies received high-ranking awards. In 2015, the SLYRS Classic was named the best single malt in Europe under the age of 12. The SLYRS Marsala was voted best single malt whisky in Germany in 2017. Traditionally, limited special editions appear once or twice a year, which are sold out within a very short time.
