Swedish whisky brands: Young but sophisticated

While the most northerly countries aren’t commonly associated with whisky production, Sweden is making a name in the world of exclusive pours. Telling a story of the ancient oak forests through innovative Swedish scotch whisky blends continues to deliver interesting results rooted in the local traditions of flavoring food with berries and juniper smoke. 

Are you excited about extraordinary blends? At The Whisky Distributors, you can find the most sought-after recipes and bottles directly from Sweden.

Mackmyra Swedish whisky

You may have come across statements that the country’s top distillery – Mackmyra – originated from a simple question when there were none in Sweden back in 1999. True, the brand that has won many accolades was born at the get-together of friends who wondered why anyone hadn’t made Swedish whisky before. However, they set out for more than jumping on the whisky bandwagon or trying to bring something new to the table. 

Mackmyra’s founders focused on using Swedish ingredients only and maturation in old mines to give their products a distinct Scandinavian whisky character. Today, Mackmyra is renowned for amazing craftsmanship and is exported all over the world, so don’t let its young age discourage you from finding new favorites with Swedish names.

Mackmyra has always set the bar high, so if you have any doubts about drinks being created by Artificial Intelligence – check! Aptly named Intelligens, Mackmyra’s single-malt whisky with machine learning models augmenting its creation is pioneering the way to what we’ll probably soon refer to as ‘smart whisky making.’

To further diversify the flavors, AI can generate new recipes and variations of ingredients for Swedish pours. We can’t wait to see the results of this blending lab and compare them to some of the older releases.

Scandinavian whisky with complexity and character

Age statements are merely guidelines for finding something you or your giftee will like. Age isn’t such a determining factor in the art of maturing drinks as cask quality, and acquiring more wood flavors from the barrel isn’t always better. So, if you are interested in trying something different from your typical ‘go-to’ profile, order Swedish whisky from The Whisky Distributors.

If you had to choose only one to sip for a Scandinavian experience, pick a Mackmyra pour with its smoky juniper and oak notes. It is a great introduction to the leading Swedish brands that feature many richly layered, delicious, and well-rounded flavor profiles.
