Mixing what some would call the purest water in the world with local Swedish ingredients is the winning concept at Mackmyra. “And no additives,” assures Lisa Collins, marketing manager. “The sweetness in our whisky comes from the Swedish barley, which develops a distinct flavour during the long, sunny summer days. Some of our whiskies are also matured in casks of Swedish oak. The Swedish oak has grown slowly in our harsh Scandinavian climate and generously adds a fiery spice to the whisky.” This spice, balanced with the fruitiness, is what characterises Mackmyra. Today, Mackmyra can be found in most parts of Europe as well as the US, Canada and Taiwan.
