01 Barley malt from Bavaria

Barley forms the basis of every malt Whiskys. For our SLYRS we use a two-row summer barley. It can be found in the best quality in the Munich area. After careful malting in a special malt house, it is gently kilned, i.e. dried. That gives our SLYRS the typical, pleasantly spicy smoky taste. Together with our mountain spring water and the aromatic mountain air, it gives it its unmistakably Bavarian character.

02 Purest mountain spring water

The quality of a Whiskys stands and falls with the water used. SLYRS is very fortunate to have the purest, mineral-rich mountain spring water right in front of the distillery, so to speak. Our water comes from the Bannwald spring in the Schliersee Alps. Its purity and quality determine the unique taste of our Bavarian Single Malt in an outstanding way Whiskys.

Of course we stand by SLYRS always energized. We have our hands full. But when it comes to distilling, we take our time.

The gentler and slower the distillation, the better the quality of the Whiskys. Because the valuable aromas are retained.

05 Aging in American white oak barrels

The white oak wood gives our SLYRS a wonderful aroma. Another nuance is the fine layer of charcoal that develops when the barrels burn out.

After a maturing period of three to six years, it becomes part of ours Whiskys decanted into well-travelled barrels, including Bodegas Tradición/Jerez, for special finishing touches. This results in noble rarities with a very individual taste. Our pride that SLYRS Aged 12 Years, by the way, is matured in traditional barrels from our own house. Also the SLYRS Mountain Edition, which breathes mountain air in our high-altitude camp at the top of Mount Stümpfling, rests in American white oak barrels.
