About this Moment limited edition
Moment Efva is an elegant single malt whisky produced from a creative collaboration with jewellery designer, Efva Attling.
Following a tour at Mackmyra’s main storage in Bodås, Efva Attling has, together with Master Blender Angela D’Orazio, handpicked these casks. The 19 casks that caught Efva’s attention were mainly Oloroso, American oak and ex-Bourbon barrels. The majority had been saturated with Swedish birch tree sap wine.
A request for more prominent sweetness resulted in the use of a cask which had held cherry wine. The result is a sophisticated and fruity whisky. It has soft notes of oak and birch, combined with slight spicy tones of red berries. The edition is ornamented with a polished silver cork, designed by Efva.
