Mackmyra produces some of the smoothest and most mindbogglingly innovative whiskies on the planet. 

Limousin is partially matured in French oak casks from Maison Ferrand the geniuses behind Plantation Rum Citadelle Gin and some of the world’s finest Cognac. As well as the Limousin oak barrels that had previously held Cognac there’s also American oak (some of which is soaked in Oloroso) raspberry wine Swedish oak and ex-Bourbon casks in the mix making it a pretty complex concoction. The idea behind this mellow whisky was to capture the golden hour in the French countryside. So let the waves of golden raisin sweet dried fruit citrus prune vanilla marmalade marzipan dark chocolate crystallised ginger ripe pear caramel and grape wash over you. Magical stuff to sip as the sun goes down.

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.
