Who are we

The same enthusiast that founded The Faroese Whisky Society ”Einmalt” many years ago developed the idea of utilizing the perfect conditions for whisky production and maturation on the salty and windy Faroe Islands in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. This idea became Faer Isles Distillery. Since then, a group of investors, business developers, and specialists have joined and formed the team behind the project today.

Bogi Karbech Mouritsen

Bjarni Lamhauge

Advisory Board

The Faer Isles Advisory Board is a non-executive group of experts that provide strategic advice to the management. It contributes to ensuring the professional development of the company. Each board member has been selected for their individual experiences and skills, and we have sought to put together a group of people with different but complementary profiles. The board currently consists of:

• Julia Nourney, Germany (Independent Spirits Consultant with 20+ years of experience)

• Heini Zachariassen, USA (Founder and CEO of Vivino, the world’s largest online wine marketplace)

• Michael Fraser, Scotland (Business Development Manager at Badachro Distillery, previously at GlenWyvis)

• Alexandre Sakon, France (Owner/Operator at ASC Barrels Creator of NEOC®️ Barrel)

Faer Isles Founder's Club

From August to December 2020, we invited whisky and gin enthusiast around the world to join us in making supreme whisky and gin in perfect surroundings. We were overwhelmed by the support, as fans from 22 countries became members of the exclusive Faer Isles Founders' Club. Registration for the Founder's Club is now closed, but you can still become a regular member.

Who are we?

As of 2018 Faer Isles Distillery has been an active entity. Bogi Mouritsen and Bjarni Lamhauge are managing the production, developing the spirits and the procedures that we use. Dánial Hoydal is managing the business development, marketing and sales. Behind us are a group of investors and business people - and not least our Advisory Board, consisting of people with relevant skills or deep industry knowledge, ensuring a high level of professionalism in various aspects of the business.


We are now looking for investors. Primarily enthusiasts that wish to help us making world-class whisky and other spirits on the Faroe Islands. By making a small investment you can help make this happen. Our first round of community funding was March-July 2021. There will be a second round in the first half of 2022.
