Mackmyra has come a long way since 1999 when it was founded as the only whisky distillery in Sweden. Since then it has earned a reputation as a top quality single malt producer in spite of its untraditional Scandinavian location. Alongside various special releases, the First Edition was launched in 2008 with Brukswhisky following in 2010. Two styles of whisky are produced by Mackmyra, a ‘peaty’ malt created using bog moss and juniper wood as well as a fruitier, unpeated style.

In 2012 a second site was opened at Gävle, a gravity-run facility that stands at 37 metres high! Between the two sites Mackmyra Svensk Whisky have a capacity to rival many a Scottish distillery with the difference being that almost all of Mackmyra’s output is going into single malts!

They create their malt whisky using selected Swedish ingredients and with no additives whatsoever. Much of the whisky has been stored in 100-litre casks, which produces an exciting, powerful ageing process. These casks are all stored in the Bodås mine, 50 metres down inside the primary rock.

From Mackmyra's Moment series comes the Ledin expression, named after (and created in collaboration with) Swedish singer and songwriter Tomas Ledin. Mackmyra Master Blender Angela D’Orazio and Tomas Ledin selected a group of casks maturing Mackmyra's Swedish single malt that had previously held Sauternes wine to create this release.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Salted caramel, white chocolate and mince pies.

Palate: Juicy orchard fruits stand out - pear, peach and fresh clementine. A very subtle touch of smoked oak in the background.

Finish: An underlying hint of roasted barley, surrounded by candied peels and butterscotch.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
