Faer Isles is a start-up craft distillery that wants to produce high quality whisky and gin on the Faroe Islands, the perfect location for both spirits. The salty, windy nature on the island provide the optimal atmosphere for whisky maturation, and the surrounding nature provide the juniper, angelica, nettles, and seaweed used for the gin.
The Faroe Islanders rely on surface water for drinking water. The warm North Atlantic Current provides the moist atmosphere, where the mountains collect water in abundance. The Faroese water is very clean and almost mineral free, making it perfect for spirit production.
The Faroe Islands are situated in the warm North Atlantic Current. This means that the sea water is very stable in temperature at around 6-8 degrees all year nwith little variation from night to day and from winter to summer, and the North Atlantic Current maintains a high humidity around the islands, where strong winds whip salt into the air. The Faroese climate is like the climate in Scotland, only more humid, more salty, and more stable in temperature. This is perfect for maturing whisky in barrels.
