Two hours of pure nerdiness
The tour takes you through the distillery and barrel storage, where all the production processes are explained.
How do you get from malt to raw spirit? What effect does the wooden barrel have on the raw spirit? What botanicals are used in gin and how do you make apple brandy?
All this and much more will be explained during this two-hour event.
Time to taste

Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to buy some goodies from the distillery shop.
North Sealand's only whiskey distillery
Thornæs Distillery is North Sealand's first and (so far) only whiskey distillery. In addition to whiskey, there is also plenty of gin, schnapps, and apple brandy produced. The distillery has been around for almost three years, and the first whiskey will be ready in August 2023.
