Jaktlycka – A collaboration with Grythyttan Vin

Malin Åberg

Behind Grythyttan Vin are Per and Ingunn, two passionate winemakers who want to highlight the tastes and grandeur of the Nordic forests. With berries, fruit and birch sap, they create natural berry wines, showing consideration for nature and respect for the ingredients. They only use nature’s own pantry with no additives, as they are completely convinced that the berries can speak for themselves. A natural experience for you to savour and enjoy. Their work shows consideration for both product and planet, from when they receive the ingredients to quality inspection, fermentation, storage and bottling.

Jakt (meaning hunt) is a dry, fresh red wine made from wild blueberries and lingonberries from the forests of Bergslagen in central Sweden. The wine has a clear ruby red colour and a fresh aroma of forest berries and oak. Ripe, freshly-picked blueberries set the tone in Grythyttan Jakt, with the combination of sweetness and acidity providing a pleasant fruitiness. The red gold of the forest, lingonberries, contribute acidity and bitterness to enhance the crispness of the wine. Jakt wine can be elegantly paired with heartier dishes and is ideal for game, lamb, beef and grilled meats.

THE RESULT

Mackmyra Jaktlycka (Happy hunting) is a Swedish single malt whisky that celebrates autumn and the treasures to be found in the ancient Swedish woods. An engaging trail of blueberries and lingonberries is revealed as the whisky was predominantly matured in casks that previously held Swedish berry wine from the craft producer, Grythyttan. The essence of the whisky is our elegant recipe, aged in casks of Swedish and American oak, combined with a handful of smoky recipe casks for an inviting depth. The result is an expressive whisky with a smooth creamy texture that branches out in notes of dried fruit, berries, spiciness, raisin and vanilla – A saga told in flavour.
