Mackmyra Swedish Whisky Distillery

Mackmyra Swedish Whisky Distillery Mackmyra Swedish Whisky Distillery is trying it best to get onto the worldwide whisky market but promoting their brands to different countries. There have a saying at the distillery that their whisky is to good to stay in Sweden and they are starting to make this happen. They want to give the Mackmyra brands the viewing that they think they deserve and make the whisky available for people to experience the unique taste and spirit.

At the end of 2011 this distillery opened a new distillery which will quadruple production to 1.2 million litres. The old distillery could only produce 300,000 litres and the great thing about this distillery is they are using all the extra production on Single Malts. As the distillery get older and more experienced the quality of their Single Malt are going to increase. Now when they release a new bottle through a network of outlets it sells out within hours and this just show you how popular in Sweden the Mackmyra whisky brand has become. At present (March 2012) Mackmyra are on their Special number 7 after great success from the previous 6 bottles.

The distillery is now 10 years old after a group of friends decided to start this company and is now Sweden biggest producing distillery. The distillery is located 90 minutes from Arland Airport if you plan a visit to Sweden.
