“In my spare time, I used to make my own beer and wine, and I loved the process of it, so when we decided that we needed a change we thought: ‘Why not spirits?’” explains Jes Mosgaard. “So we bought a farm in southern Fyn. This part of Fyn has very hard water, which makes for a smoother texture in the final product, and Denmark has one of the best climates for growing barley – the essential raw material for whisky.” Mosgaard Whisky is an organic spirit producer. “For conventional crops, chemicals and fertilisers go into the product and change the taste. As we wanted the clearest and crispest taste we could achieve, organic was the only way for us,” says Jes.
