“Why are there no whisky distilleries Sweden?” one of the friends asked. None of the others could answer the question, leaving it floating in the air. Sweden has no tradition of making whisky. They thought that was weird when they began to explore whether it was possible to create a Swedish single malt whisky -for everywhere they turned, they saw opportunities.

Sweden, has one of the world’s purest water, filtered to perfection since the Ice Age. It is no coincidence that the distillery is located next to a boulder with constant access to the crystal clear waters. Swedish barley develops a special sweetness during the long summer days, a sweetness that has become one of the cornerstones of their whisky.

A large part of their whisky is stored in new Swedish oak. The Swedish oak grows slowly in the harsh climate and gives the whisky a harsher flavour than American oak. The whisky gets a fiery spice balanced by sweetness similar to caramelized sugar.

Today they produce whisky with the same joy of discovery and experimentation as they did when starting in 1999, but in one of the world’s most modern distilleries. They do it according to the rules of art, but we do it their way and with Swedish ingredients. To produce whisky without additives and with as little environmental impact as possible is for them a matter of course.

We hope that you want to continue to explore our Swedish flavours with us!
