A story of a great rock band, well-crafted Single Malt, a unique cask set-up, and The Winds of Change.

We shouldn’t surprised that a Single Malt Whisky could be made well in Sweden. After all, Sweden sits at about the same latitude as Scotland and is surrounded by the same North Sea. I guess we should really be asking what took them so long to get around to it? Mackmyra has been tinkering with their malt-distillery since 1999, but up until a few years ago all their product was used in side beverages, blends, and flavored drinks until they got it right. They started releasing their Single Malts in 2008. Most of their Spirits are aged in new, Swedish oak placed 50 meters underground in an abandoned mineshaft.

If you listened to hard rock music in the 1970s and 1980s you already know the band The Scorpions. They are one of the most influential bands in the genre and have a long string of hits. Mackmyra Scorpions Single Malt Whisky is a collaboration between the band and the Mackmyra Distillery. The base Spirits is aged in a combination of ex-Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks. Then — in a tribute to the band’s German heritage — it is finished in casks used to mature sweet German Cherry Wine.
