Björksav

Volume 70 cl. / Alc 46,1% / /

Mackmyra Björksav (birch sap) is a Swedish single malt whisky inspired by the long-awaited return of spring. By including casks that were seasoned with Swedish birch sap wine, we have created a floral whisky with a fresh spiciness and sweet notes of vanilla fudge. Björksav is a collaboration with our friends at Grythyttan wine.

Grythyttan Jaktvin (Hunting wine)

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.
