Who we are

The same enthusiast that founded The Faroese Whisky Society ”Einmalt” many years ago developed the idea of utilising 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 Whisky. Since then, a group of investors, business developers, and specialists have joined and formed the team behind the project today.
