MACKMYRA Moment Körsbär 47%
Single Malt Whisky, Sweden / Gavleborg County, 70cl, Ref: 53700
Following up the distinctive Mackmyra Blomstertid, this Moment proves once again the expertise of Mackmyra when it comes to blending. Having been aged in barrels of bourbon, American oak, oloroso sherry casks and Swedish oak, the unique feature of this version resides in barrels that have previously stored sweet cherry wine. The pink color of this whisky comes from this special finishing. The result is an elegant whisky with notes of vanilla, fruit, spicy oak, sweet cherry and berries.

- The brand
Located in the province of Gästrikland, the Mackmyra distillery first opened its doors in 1999. Unique in more than one respect, Mackmyra was the first distillery in Sweden to produce whisky. It produces single malts produced from Swedish barley and sources its water from an underground spring fed by the hills of Valboåsen. While part of its whisky stock is left to mature in 100 litre casks, the Mackmyra distillery also uses first-fill ex-bourbon barrels that, once filled, are stocked in a warehouse 50 metres underground in the “Bodäs” mine. It also uses new Swedish oak casks from a forest located on the island of Visingsö, planted over 160 years ago to provide a source of wood for the construction of military navy boats.
