About Mackmyra Gruvguld
Mackmyra Gruvguld ("gold from the mine") has been aged in small casks of 30, 100 and 128 litres, in the mine of Bodås, 50 metres below ground. This whisky is a tribute to Mackmyra's powerful 30 litre casks that have been with their distillery since the start; more than half of the end result was achieved in these casks of different oak types and finishes. The new make spirit was mainly Mackmyra's unpeated recipe, with the exception of a few smoky casks for a small spicy addition. In the wide variety of casks used, there were also some that previously stored Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry.

What about taxes?
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
Which couriers do you use?
