ABOUT THE WHISKY
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… the result is Mackmyra Svensk Whisky, which first began distilling at the end of 1999. The only Swedish whisky distillery, and the most northerly distillery in the world, they began with a small 100litre copper boiler at the Bruk mill, which gave them only 30l of whisky per distillation cycle. This was the inspiration for the small 30l casks the distillery uses today – smaller casks result in faster maturation. Production was expanded in 2002, but remains very small by international standards. Swedish oak is used extensively, and there is a consistent effort to ensure that Mackmyra whisky exemplifies a specifically Swedish character in their whiskies. A large proportion of their barrels are stored in the disused Bodås Mine.

TASTING NOTES
Crushed red apples, caramel-toffee and a hint of fresh earth aromas, interlaced with nutmeg and cinnamon spice. The distillates selected for this blend were chosen for their fresh apple-character, to be combined with the more intense apple-flavours which would be derived from the Calvados barrels. The palate is spicy, with a hint of brioche, and plenty of cedar oak-influence, as well as the pervasive flavours of cooked apple and toffee. A touch of heat on the finish of this relatively youthful, full-flavoured whisky.

FOOD PAIRING
Ideal neat, perhaps lightly chilled. The flavours are powerful enough to carry through, even if served on the rocks, but the ice will diminish the delicacy of the malt. The more adventurous could try this with an apple crumble…

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Produced in collaboration with a leading producer of Calvados, Christian Drouin. Calvados is an appellation for apple-brandy in Brittany, where cask-ageing is used to produce an expressive, diverse spirit.
