Swedish Whisky Tasting

Mackmyra Whisky

Mackmyra Whisky will be presenting their unique product  in a comfortable and casual setting. The presentation will include the story about the beginnings of Mackmyra, how it is distilled, and what makes their whisky different (besides it's being Swedish). There will be 6 tastes based on the two basic flavors of Mackmyra from the three different woods used in their casks.

Merchandise (hats, T-shirts, glasses, etc.) will be available for sale. Bottles cannot be sold at the tasting, but if you are interested in owning your own barrel of Mackmyra Whiskey, you will be able to purchase your very own custom whisky in a barrel.

This event will be held at the Mackmyra offices at Hantverkargatan 5, Hus 5, 112 21 Stockholm. It is near the Stadhuset. Cars are not advised-the Blue bus #3 stops right outside.

Seating is limited to 25, so please, reserve your seat early.  Registration and payment information can be found below.
