Overview

Mackmyra – Explorers in whisky. The Swedish original since 1999. We had a dream. To create the first Swedish malt whisky. We chose our own way and developed it from scratch. The road was neither the easiest nor the fastest. But it was the right one, we reached our goal. A Swedish malt whisky with its own identity. In our 35 meter high distillery, we have traceability right down to the individual grain fields, and furthermore space to continue looking beyond the traditional. The storage of the small handmade casks is an example. Another is the Swedish oak who so generously share its character to the whisky. In Mackmyra Whisky Village, just outside Gavle, you will find our distillery, forest warehouse, and visitor center with restaurant. Enjoy a delicious meal, try our whisky and see how we manufacture Swedish whisky. We’ll take you to the top of the distillery and guide you through the whole process from top to bottom.

We took the Småfatens magi tasting and it felt like being in Scotland 🤗Very good introduction, 6 different and quite interesting small casks tastings, enjoyed a lot. A pity that you cannot buy the one(s) you liked, Swedish laws don't allow it.

Just a few meters beside the motorway near Gävle, there is the Mackmyra Destillery. They produce the whisky form Top-Down! Take you time, make short stop and visit the company. You can even buy your own barrel, but not take it with you. There are...More

A few years ago a group of fellows decided to cash in on the Single Malt Scotch fad. The Swedes make outstanding vodka, schnapps, beer and cider, but they do not know how to make whiskey. Don't waste your money, not even for the novelty.
