Mackmyra was created in 1998 by 8 friends from the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology who, during an annual ski trip, realised they had all brought along Scotch single malt whisky to share with each other, and wondered why there was no Swedish equivalent.
Mackmyra is named after a small village near Valbo, south-east of the town of Gavle (yav-leh). The team worked for four years on recipes and production techniques before building the main distillery in 2002.
All ingredients for distilling their spirit – which the exception of the yeast - are sourced within 75 miles of the original distillery.
A 2nd distillery named Gravity was opened 6 miles away from the original distillery in 2011 – the 35 metre high building utilises 7 floors to move the production process down from the top floor where the barley is delivered, milling, mashing, fermentation and distillation take place on each lowering level, which saves considerable energy – it uses 45% less than the original distillery and the business continues to work on saving even more.
The Master Blender is Angela D’Orazio, who was originally a brand ambassador for Glenmorangie before joining Mackmyra in 2002 as part of the tasting panel for devloping recipes. She came on board full-time in 2004 after it became apparent she was head and shoulders above everyone else on the team in terms of being able to discern subtleties in flavour profiles, and continues to be a passionate figurehead for the distillery.
Mackmyra is a very experimental brand, and regularly release bottlings matured or finished in different types of casks. Released in March 2022, Mackmyra Limousin is the last of the Seasonal Releases from the distillery. It’s a 13 year old whisky matured predominently in Limousin oak Cognac barrels sourced from the highly regarded Maison Ferrand, with some additional stock also matured in seasoned Oloroso casks, Swedish oak and ex-Bourbon barrels plus a small amount in casks that previously held a raspberry wine. No colour is added and no chill-filtration takes place, and it is bottled at 46.1% ABV.
