Mackmyra launches luxury Swedish drink with a French connection

Mackmyra continues a proud tradition by highlighting flavours and artisanship beyond the whisky world’s traditional standards with Mackmyra Limousin. This edition is inspired by the prestigious French oak region and combines Mackmyra’s classic elegant Swedish whisky character with a deliciously ripe rich vinosity.

Mackmyra Limousin is a rich Swedish single malt whisky inspired by the influential French oak district of the same name. The whisky is characterized by Mackmyra’s elegant and prestored recipes, where a significant portion is finished in oak barrels that previously stored Cognac from the renowned Cognac House Ferrand. To emphasize the fruitiness, Mackmyra have complemented the recipe with older Oloroso casks, as well as casks saturated with wine made of berries (cherry wine and forest raspberry wine) to add intrigue, complexity, and a touch of freshness.

Limousin is a limited single malt and is the culmination of the Season series. Mackmyra annually launches two new limited editions adapted to the season, which has become a success and tradition in Sweden for 17 years. The Seasonal editions have made the distillery internationally known through the finishing of whisky in casks saturated with flavours that are close to Swedish nature. Limousin is the last edition in the product series, but far from the last limited edition.

Mackmyra’s Seasonal whisky Limousin is available from March 9th, with a special live launch event on the 24th March at Mackmyra.com
