- "Why are there no whisky destilleries Sweden?" Someone 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. We thought that was weird when we began to explore whether it was possible to create a Swedish single malt whisky -for everywhere we turned, we saw opportunities.
In Sweden, we find 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. Our Swedish barley develops a special sweetness during the long summer days, a sweetness that has become one of the cornerstones of our whisky.
A large part of our whiskey is stored in new Swedish oak. The Swedish oak grows slowly in our harsh climate and gives the whisky a harsher flavor than American oak. The whisky gets a fiery spice balanced by sweetness similar to caramelized sugar.
Today we produce whisky with the same joy of discovery and experimentation as we did when starting in 1999, but in one of the world's most modern distilleries. We do it according to the rules of art, but we do it our way and with Swedish ingredients. To produce whisky without additives and with as little environmental impact as possible is for us a matter of course.
We hope that you want to continue to explore our Swedish flavors with us.
The First Edition is our first core range bottling. A large proportion of the whisky is aged in 100-liter casks, giving a powerful maturation. We have also used newly manufactured Swedish oak casks which gives a lovely spiciness. The base is our Elegant recipe, matured in first fill bourbon and stored 50 feet below ground in the Bodås Mine.
Fruity with citrus, pear, apple and honey. A light oakiness with sweet, lightly toasted bread notes and fresh butter toffee.
Fruity and smooth with citrus, caramel and honey. A light oakiness can be discerned at the end. The after taste is tuned and balanced with hints of dark chocolate.
