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.
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 meters below ground in the mountain. Originallly built to extract ore, the space is now given to a more precious product
Whisky matured on Swedish Oak recieved a deep, dark colour. The taste has a spiciness, balanced by a sweetness that reminds us of caramelized sugar. The casks are handcrafted and charred to really get the flavours from the wood. Our rarest and perhaps most exciting cask.
