LCBO, the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, Canada has selected Mackmyra Swedish Whisky as this year’s “Distillery Feature” and is buying four different bottlings to be launched in May.

Mackmyra will be the first distillery feature of the year at LCBO, which means they will buy
and jointly market several bottlings at the same time.

It is of course an important milestone, for us and for Swedish whisky, when the world’s largest buyer of spirits chooses to buy Mackmyra. LCBO can select whisky from anywhere in the world and, demonstrably, we are more than holding our own in this competition,” says Rikard Lundborg, Mackmyra founder and marketing director.

“The whiskies being made at the Mackmyra distillery have grabbed the attention of whisky
enthusiasts, critics, and publications. At the LCBO, we run a specialty program within select locations wherein we feature award winning, artisanal, and niche whiskies from around the globe, and Mackmyra fits this profile perfectly and will be our first ‘Distillery Feature’ for 2012,” says Greg Tranah, Product Manager, Brown Spirits & Duty Free, LCBO.

LCBO has bought Mackmyra Whisky, Mackmyra The 1st Edition, Mackmyra Special:04, and Moment Medvind — whiskies that have all won gold medals in international whisky competitions. The whiskies will be launched in LCBO retail stores on the 12th of May and is the premiere for Mackmyra in Ontario.

Mackmyra offers us the opportunity to experience its ‘terroir’. This concept, most strongly associated with wines, is thoroughly expressed in Mackmyra, and offers a totally unique taste experience”, says Mr. Tranah at the LCBO.

SCCC welcomes new member Mackmyra Swedish Whisky

Mackmyra LogoPerhaps it sounds too simple, but it all started with a skiing trip. Eight friends met up at a mountain lodge in the spring of 1998. Each had taken along a bottle of malt whisky for the host.

The topic of conversation was obvious: How do you make whisky? And why isn’t there a Swedish one?

The question led us to start exploring the possibilities of making our own Swedish whisky…

We had a dream to create the first Swedish malt whisky. We followed our own path and developed the whisky from its origin. That path was neither the easiest nor the quickest. But it was the right path, because we reached our goal: a Swedish malt whisky with a unique identity.

At our distillery at Mackmyra Bruk, we have pursued our dreams and created the Swedish whisky.

Our distillery is not large, but huge is the care we put into the production. We make it our own way, using local ingredients and no additives, and we are constantly striving to evolve.

We maintain traceability right down to the individual field of barley. The small distillery allows us to keep on making our whisky in a handicraft manner. And to keep looking beyond the traditional
approach.

The result has put Sweden on the international whisky map!
