MACKMYRA Brukswhisky Swedish Single Malt Whisky
Mackmyra produces some of the smoothest and most mindbogglingly innovative whiskies on the planet.
Brukswhisky is Mackmyra’s core expression matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon Swedish oak and Sherry casks. It pops with butterscotch smoked pepper spices toffee apple pie pine forest crispbread sesame oil pear custard creams summer berries and banana. Unbelievably complex for the money.
Mackmyra located in the province of Gästrikland opened its doors in 1999 becoming the first distillery in Sweden to create whisky. Although their pot still comes from Rothes in Scotland pretty much everything else that goes into making their single malts is Swedish including the sweet barley (which they smoke themselves over peat and juniper twigs) the yeast the peat from a local bog near Österfärnebo and the crystal-clear water drawn from a spring fed by the Valboåsen hills. They even cooper Swedish oak from a forest located on the island of Visingsö to make some of their barrels. The whiskies are then matured in a warehouse 50 metres underground in the Bodäs mine which was once dug for ore then used to grow mushrooms and is now home to some of the finest whisky on Earth. The whiskies have garnered such a strong reputation that Mackmyra opened a deluxe second site at Gävle this impressive climate-smart and gravity-fed facility stands some 35m high. Mackmyra can now rival many Scottish distilleries in terms of output but unlike their Scotch counterparts they produce no blended whisky just single malt and a little gin.
