VintersolVintersol

An exciting combination of Swedish single malt whisky with finish in casks that previously held portwine with notes of vanilla, chocolate and pepper.

  • CASKS

Mackmyra Vintersol (Winter Sun) is a Swedish single malt whisky created in collaboration with the Port wine producer Quinta Do Vallado, one of the oldest and most famous Quintas in the Douro Valley.


The Swedish winter sun rarely visits as often as we like it to, and so we wanted the flavour of sun-soaked grapes to keep this whisky company. 

Nose: Spicy and herbal with fruity warm vinous grape tones and a minerality. Soft vanilla oakiness, with aromas of anise, ginger, raisin, pear caramel and vanilla. 


Taste: Soft, fruity yet spicy with dried fruit, pears and raisins, ginger and vanilla. With a creamy and medium-rich texture. 


Aftertaste: Fruity, spicy and oaky with warm raisins

1st fill Ex-Portwine casks, 500-700 L 

New and 1st fill Amerikan oak, 200-128 L 

1st fill Ex-Bourbon, 100 L 

1st fill Oloroso and Swedish oak, 100-128 L

CO-PARTNER

Quinta do Vallado

The famous Quinta Do Vallado was founded in 1716 and has since made its name as one of Portugal’s best port wine producers. For over 300 years they have refined the methods of producing port wines of the highest quality. The challenge, however, is the same as always – finding the perfect balance. 


At the end of 2017, we went down to Portugal and started an exciting collaboration with Quinta Do Vallado. Their well-reputed port wine is a great match for our whisky and in early 2018 we sent down the first 30-liter barrels for saturation in their warehouse. Once in place, they were saturated by Vallados staff. That’s when we started the process of preparing barrels to give Vintersol the perfect port finish.

Awards & Reviews

Mark Dermul, whiskybase.com 

“This whisky will do well at the end of autumn or the beginning of winter, that much is clear. It’s nicely spicy and reminds me of a cozy get together around a bonfire, with a scarf around your neck, a bonnet on your head and a glass of Vintersol in your hand!”
