Mackmyra distillery is located north of Stockholm on the east coast of Sweden. It was founded in 1999 by a group of friends bemused at the fact that there was no Swedish whisky. Within 3 years a second, gravity powered distillery was built and an IWSC EU spirit producer of the year was in their award cabinet. Their whisky is matured 50 metres under ground in the old Bodas mine. Mackmyra First Edition (~€50) is matured in virgin Swedish oak and first fill bourbon barrels and bottled at 46% ABV.
