For 125 years, the buildings that now house Nyborg Distillery were workshops for Danish State Railway freight trains. Here, at the very heart of the kingdom of Denmark, intrepid men kept Denmark running. When the Great Belt Bridge opened, the workshop shut down its entire 4,000-m2 facility, and for more than 13 years everything stagnated and fell into disrepair.

It was not until 2017 that the buildings gained a new lease of life, when Niels and Nicolai Rømer opened one of the largest distilleries in Denmark. But the whisky adventure had already started in the Ørbæk Brewery basement back in 2009, when they launched the production of whisky, gin and rum. Production continued here until it had expanded to such an extent that new premises were called for. Of course, the products are all organic, and several of them have won medals in some of the most acclaimed spirits competitions in the world.

The distillery also has its own Organic Gold Label restaurant and a shop selling the distillery’s own products and a selection of beers and soft drinks from Ørbæk Brewery.
