Mackmyra began as an idea formed by 8 friends on a skiing trip in 1998 - each had brought a bottle of malt whisky to share, and the topic of conversation turned to how whisky is made, and why there wasn't a Swedish one... Mackmyra Bjorksav (meaning birch sap) is a single malt whisky inspired by the long awaited return of Spring. By including casks that were seasoned with Swedish birch sap wine they have created a floral whisky with a fresh spiciness and sweet notes of vanilla fudge. This is a very much a collaborative project which involves their friends at Grythyttan Vin, Per and Ingunn - two passionate winemakers who want to highlight the tastes and grandeur of the Nordic forests. With berries, other seasonal fruits and birch sap they create natural wines that show consideration for nature and respect for the ingredients. Grythyttan Bjork is made from local sap that is tapped just before the birch 'cracks' in the spring - this fresh, delicate wine has resulted in a uniquely crafted whisky that is the sweet taste of a Swedish Spring.

The nose is floral and fruity with a light spiciness that blends vanilla fudge, sandalwood, cedar and toasted bread. Floral and slightly waxy notes of the birch sap wine itself follow with round and fruity notes of cherry; raisins; apple; pear and lemon. The mouthfeel is a fresh, fruity and spicy with a light minerality and herbaceousness together with vanilla fudge; raisins; ripe pears; apple and lemon. Further gentle flavours of toasted oak; floral honey; sandalwood; cedar; anise; white pepper and ginger and a lush, slightly oily texture present a style that is at once delicate and complex. The light, spicy finish is in complete harmony with toasty oak and dried fruits.
