Mackmyra Grönt Te is one of our most innovative creations to date

Mackmyra Grönt Te (Green Tea) is a Swedish single malt whisky that has been finished in newly saturated Ex-Oloroso casks. A blend of oloroso wine and the finest vintage Japanese green tea leaves have seasoned the casks, providing a subtly spicy and flavourful whisky with a fruity and floral finish. 

The whisky has notes of fine vanilla, green apples and herbal green tea. Grönt Te is light amber in colour with subtle red reflections and is great to enjoy on any occasion.

Nose: Spicy, floral, red berries and fruits with notes of green tea, white pepper and roasted vanilla. Dried grapes, citrus, pear and forest berries. 

Mouth: Fruity and floral finish with fine vanilla, herbal green tea notes, green apples and finishing with a light spiciness.

Summary: Spicy, fruity with herbal green tea leaves and rich vanilla.

Producing Japanese tea is in many ways similar to the production of whisky as they both share the same values in quality, taste and aroma experiences. We are very conscious that our product is handled with care, and we felt very comfortable handing our Japanese tea over to Angela. Working on this project with Angela has been fun and extremely educational and I am very excited that Japanese tea can be used as a flavour in such an experimental way. Mackmyra Grönt Te raises the character and flavours of the tea giving the whisky a unique aroma and taste inspired by Sweden and Japan.

Interesting and unusual flavour

I have put whisky in my coffee but never in my tea!
This innovation definitely works; the very subtle flavour of the tea not so much disguises the burn of the whiskey but makes the sipping of it a taste extravaganza.

Surprise in a bottle!

Didn’t know what to expect of a whisky with green tea, but wow. I need to buy all the seasonal editions if this is anything to go by.

Very different, very special, very good

I am a newcomer to Swedish whisky and have been very pleasantly surprised as to how good it really is, not least this particular single malt. I have now tasted at least 7 of their range and they are all extremely good for their particular price points. I would recommend Mackmyra to anyone who wishes to expand their whisky horizons, not least Gront Te which is exceptional.

Very smooth

Really enjoyed this whiskey. Characteristic Mackmyra richness was lightened by the Green Tea barrel maturation, which to me added a not of apple (rather than citrus). Really nice sipping whiskey, would buy again
