About Mackmyra Vinterglöd
Mackmyra Vinterglöd ("winter glow") is an elegant Swedish single malt whisky distilled at Mackmyra Bruk. This whisky is inspired by the Swedish winter tradition of drinking mulled wine during the colder months of the year. Vinterglöd, a collaboration with Saturnus Glögg, carries notes of orange, candied fruit and almond, together with oak and a ginger-like spiciness. The aromatic profile of the whisky comes from casks that previously held Swedish mulled wine and Pedro Ximénez Sherry.
