Mackmyra is one of the few distilleries in the world which self-produces its smoky distillate. Both malting and smoking take place in a facility situated close to the distillery using Swedish-grown barley and peat drawn from the nearby Karinmossen (Karin bog). And to add a further Swedish dimension to the smoky flavour, the glowing peat is seasoned with brittle juniper twigs. The result is a complex, well-balanced whisky with a powerful smokiness.
Bourbon is the traditional type of cask to mature single malt whisky. The casks are brought in from the USA where they were earlier used to mature bourbon. They are then coopered to 30-litre casks and filled with our malt spirit to become Single Malt Whisky. The cask give the whisky a round, soft character with sweet notes of vanilla, pear, apple and citrus.
In the south of Gästrikland is our largest and oldest whisky warehouse located, surrounded by a mighty forest. In here, the whisky is securely matured, 50 metres below ground in the mountain. Originally built to extract ore, the space is now given to a more precious product
