Malt whisky from Scandinavia
We've created the first ever Scandinavian malt whisky. With Mackmyra Reserve, we've also made it possible for you to create your own whisky. You can select one of our spirit styles distilled in 2006 and then have the new-make spirit matured in one of three different cask types, to get the kind of whisky you prefer.
Once each year we will send you samples from your cask in bottles bearing labels with your text so that you can decide when your whisky is ready for bottling. You can read more about Macmyra Reserve here.

Northernmost in the world - the only one in Sweden
Our distillery is located at a picturesque, old Swedish industrial estate, Mackmyra, a couple of hours' drive north of Stockholm. We started operations in 1999 as Sweden's only whisky distillery and the world's most northerly. At that time, our operations were on a very small scale, with one copper still holding only 100 litres. In this pilot distillery, we developed our recipes. And we showed the world that it was possible to create an excellent malt whisky from the raw materials and conditions we have in Sweden.
In the spring of 2002, we installed new equipment so we could produce in greater volumes. Compared with distilleries in other countries however, we are still small-scale and craftsmanlike. Which is just the way we like it.
FAQSmall variations - big differences
Anyone who has tasted more than one type of whisky knows that small variations can have a big impact. After years of experimentation with different recipes and casks, we arrived at two basic recipes - one fruity and elegant, and the other with a glorious smoky flavour.
By combining these two recipes with three different types of cask, we have produced six different varieties. Sherry butts, bourbon barrels and not least our cask made of new Swedish Oak all contribute different tastes, fragrances and colours to the finished product.
Mackmyra Elegant is our original recipe, designed to produce a well-balanced, well-rounded malt whisky. It allows the cask notes to come to the fore with the best flavours from sherry butts, bourbon barrels and new Swedish Oak casks.
As a complement to Elegant, we wanted to produce a smoky variety. We experimented with various types of spice on a base of bog-moss peat. We soon found that juniper brush, which have given its distinctive flavour to smoked sausages and ham for centuries, was the best alternative here, too. A different and very distinctively Scandinavian smoky flavour.

Founded in 1999 and operational three years later, the world's northernmost whiskey distillery, Mackmyra, has attracted hundreds of faithful customers who have invested in their personal cask of Swedish single malt.
