Pear & Carrot is proud to be the sole distributor of Napue Gin in Hong Kong and Macau. You can find Kyrö’s Napue Rye Gin in drinking dens and eateries throughout the islands, from the top of the world at the Ritz-Carlton’s Ozone Bar to the secretive speakeasies like Dr Fern’s Gin Parlor.
The participation in Asia’s International Wine and Spirits Competition saw Kyrö Napue Rye Gin awarded Asia’s Best Gin, marking the first time a Finnish distillery takes home such an award in Asia.
Finns like to conceive ideas while in a sauna. That’s where the story of this all-rye distillery began in 2012. One of the fellows on that fateful sauna session had an idea where to build the distillery: the most famous cheese factory in Finland had been closed for the past 5 years and was ready for a gentle takeover. After enduring two years of building and bureaucracy, the fearless Rye Rye distillers finally fired up the stills in 2014.
“In rye we trust”
we do everything the hard way: rye is the hardest grain to distill. We are the world’s northernmost gin and whisky distillery, using wild botanicals foraged from the old Napue battleground. We believe that good things come to honest enthusiasts. We are bold people who enjoy things they like the way they like. Coming from the arctic we know that having good company is not only nice; it’s a necessity.
