Mackmyra Bruks DLX is the new edition of the Moment series

The special version of the popular Bruks was matured for a longer time


The Swedish distillery Mackmyra presents the new edition of the Moment series: Mackmyra Bruks DLX will be launched on June 9th. It is an upscale and luxurious version of the Mackmyra classic Brukswhisky, as the manufacturer's current press release announces, for which the whisky was matured longer in the casks than for the classic Mackmyra Bruks.

„Brukswhisky has always had a place close to my heart. To be able to present this edition that is so typical Mackmyra, is a celebration to the original, but also stating that we are an established distillery. This is big. With increased age and longer period in casks the complexity is also elevated, but with a reinvigorated freshness and fruitiness,“ says Angela D'Orazio, Master Blender at Mackmyra

The Bruks pays homage to the company's original distillery in Mackmyra Bruks. The casks for this bottling were stored in the Bodås Mine for between 9 and 14 years before they were married by Angela D’Orazio to create this single malt, which is limited to 1,999 bottles. The whisky was bottled at 46.6% ABV. The price given by the distillery is 122.49 Euro.
