We have pursued our dreams and created the Swedish whisky. We make it our own way, using local ingredients and no additives. And we are constantly striving to evolve. The result has put Sweden on the international whisky map.
Under tough Swedish conditions for over more than a century, a fiery spiciness has developed in the Swedish oak. Now it generously adds character to our Mackmyra Whisky in our own Swedish oak casks.
We create our own peated malt using Swedish peat from the nearby peat bog “Karinmossen”. The peat is then flavoured with fresh juniper twigs to produce the unique taste of Mackmyra smoke.
Small 30-litre casks
Our use of small casks gives time a new meaning. The whisky matures in a more intense manner, and by using different sizes of casks (down to 30 litres) we achieve precisely the character we want. Small cask – great taste.
Our two distilleries are not large. But we take a huge amount of care with our production. The small distillery allows us to keep on making our whisky in craftsmanlike manner. And to keep looking beyond the traditional approach.
Our casks are either first-fill or virgin casks. This gives our spirit a strong, intense flavour and lots of character. Thanks to this and our small casks, our whisky matures quickly, while still retaining its complex, rich, smooth taste.
All our ingredients are local and we use no additives whatsoever. We maintain traceability right down to the individual field of barley. Nor do we chill-filter. This is pure Swedish whisky!
