Swedish Single Malt Whisky
It has been more than 18 years since we first had the idea to create Swedish Single Malt Whisky. In order to succeed, we had to question a bunch of old truths, around recepies as well as the size of casks. After a whole lot of experimenting, we reached the conclusion of 2 base recipies; one peated and one elegant.
That there was a clear connection between cask size and maturing time was no news. This lead to the 30-liter cask, a solution that no one before had tried. The whisky matures quicker in the small casks and gets a different character as a bonus.
In Sweden, there is no old tradition of making whisky. We thought that was strange when we started to explore if it was possible to make a Swedish Single Malt Whisky, because where we looked, we only saw opportunities.
In Sweden, you will find the worlds cleanest water, filtered to perfection since the ice age. There is no coincidence our first distillery lies next to a ridge with constant access to crystal clear water. Our Swedish barley develops a special kind of sweetness during the summers long days. A sweetness that has become one of the founding pillars of our whisky.
When a whisky is not peaty, we call it Elegant. If fruity notes is what makes your mouth watering, this is the way to go. The Elegant recipe lets the base sweetness from the barley come forward and gives you a soft and delicate whisky with a round base and fresh fruity touch.
Together with the fist cask owners we started building the Forrest warehouse in the summer of 2009. Opened up the year after when the first casks from the Ambassador campaign moved in. The Forrest warehouse lies in the woods next to our Gravity distillery.
The Oloroso cask is made out of american oak and then saturated with Oloroso wine to give notes of raisin, dried fruit, wine, dark chocolate and grapes. The characteristics of the cask makes it sweet, round and mellow, which makes it very likable. The colour is beautiful and goes towards dark red tones.
