“Hawboen” is a fruity, delicate and lightly smoked bourbon cask aged single malt whisky. It has aromas of vanilla, citrus, cream caramel, roasted coconut, oak spice, fresh beech sap, a light warming smoke, and a hint of something maritime and salty. It seemed appropriate to dedicate this bottle to hawboerne – the sea dwellers in Thy, who has been living and fishing of the stormy North Sea coast for generations.

We bottled the whisky at 51,5 % vol., where the whisky is balanced between strength, intensity, softness, and aroma. Apart from a few single casks, “Hawboen” is our first purely bourbon cask aged whisky since 2016. It will be the second last bottle in our inaugural series (1-24), which we will finish in 2024, 10 years after our first release.

Certified Organic

This whisky is made from 100% certified organic grains grown on our estate, Gyrup. Both the farm and the distillery are certified organic to ensure pure drinking water and good animal welfare.

Second to last

Our first cask was bottled in January 2014 as our first bottle of single malt: "Thy Whisky No 1 - Kræn Klit". Since then, we have released 23 numbered bottlings of Thy Whisky.

The initial numbered series is our playground and test-lab. It contains bottlings from single casks and multiple casks, at cask strength and lower alcohol volumes, bottlings with many and few bottles. One-offs and repetitions. Heritage and modern grain varieties – and most recently this bourbon matured Hawboen.

It has been the formative series for creating our distillery profile and sets the foundation for what Thy Whisky is today. The series is not yet complete, but we are ready to reveal that Thy Whisky no 21-24 will be the last four bottles in the series. Thy Whisky no 24 will be bottled in 2024 – the 10th year anniversary of the first Thy Whisky.

Bourbon casks and beechwood smoke

We source our bourbon casks from Heaven Hill Distillery in Kentucky, US. They add a mild fruity note and vanilla sweetness to the whisky without dominating and taking the focus away from the grain and the beechsmoked malt.

In this bottling, both 3-year-old quarter casks, a single octave and 5-6 year-old whiskey from the larger bourbon barrels are in the mix. Making whisky in bourbon barrels is a work of patience, but the casks pay off in a beautiful fruity sweetness when the tannins from the oak are quietly oxidized.
