Stored deep in Bodås Mine are thousands of casks which are regularly appraised by Angela D’Orazio, Mackmyra’s Master Blender. Whilst monitoring their progress she occasionally hits upon exceptional casks which demand to be bottled either as they are or in an edition with a particularly clear vision.
The exclusive Moment series was created for just these occasions. Showcasing Mackmyra’s most exclusive casks, only very limited editions of the series have been produced. Created in 2011, the series has resulted in around 30 unique editions since then.
