Family owned Teerenpeli Distillery was established 2002 in Lahti, Finland. Today the distillery is the biggest distillery in Finland specialized in producing premium quality Single Malt whiskies. We use traditional pot still distilling equipment, purchased from Scotland. The original Teerenpeli distillery and visitor center is located inside Restaurant Taivaanranta in Lahti city center. The new bigger distillery was opened 2015 just outside city center. 

Teerenpeli Distillery works with continous co operation with Teerenpeli Brewery. Teerenpeli Brewery has already more than 25 years of experience in brewing a wide range of beers and ciders. Popular Teerenpeli Brewery products are sold mostly in restaurants and shops in Finland.

Two distilleries

The original Teerenpeli Distillery is situated in the same building with Restaurant Taivaanranta in the city center of Lahti, Finland. A brand new distillery opened 2015 next to the Teerenpeli Brewery increasing total capacity over 100 000 litres new spirit per year. The original distillery in the city center continues distilling also allowing some interesting product development.

Teerenpeli uses a traditional pot stills, handmade in Scotland, and the spirit is matured in oak casks.  We are mostly using ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks in our production. We also mature whisky in various patches of ex-port, ex-madeira and ex-rum casks.
