Swedish Whisky

Discover why Sweden's whisky market is growing through a tasting led by their UK brand ambassador.

Traditional whisky producers now have competition from around the world. We've seen the rising sun of Japanese whisky, India too, and a resurgence in Irish whiskey.

One country that's definitely on the up is Sweden. Mackmyra are a modern experimental distiller using local barley and peat, Swedish oak barrels and a gravity fed distillation process.

At a recent whisky tasting I was fortunate to try the impressive Mackmyra range with Alex Johnson, UK brand ambassador, and later attend a masterclass with Angela d'Orazio,
Mackmyra's master blender. Impressed and enthused, sharing the experience with our
customers seemed only fair. Plus, I get to taste them all over again!
