From the ROK smoky recipe further aged in Oloroso, ex-bourbon and american oak for extra complexity and balancing flavours, expect an ooooomph of flavour and warnth for the colder month with this new edition of the famed Swedish distillery.
The idea to produce a Swedish whisky was conceived by eight friends in a mountain cabin back in 1998. One year later, in 1999, Mackmyra Svensk Whisky was established. From the outset Mackmyra was fully focused on creating a whisky which was quintessentially Swedish.
The journey began with local barley,spring water and Swedish oak. Then, thanks to a lucky coincidence, Mackmyra developed the 30-litre cask which, in its smaller format,allows the whisky to mature more intensively. Even the smoky recipe has a Swedish signature and is malted and smoked by hand using locally cut peat together with juniper twigs. A short distance from the distillery, the whisky is then aged in a unique location; the old Bodås Mine, 50 metres underground.
Today, Mackmyra produces whisky with the same curiosity and experimental zeal as in 1999, but now in the ground-breaking Gravity Distillery, which harnesses the force of gravity to aid production and is designed to substantially reduce the carbon footprint.
