Mackmyra Svensk Whisky

30 July 2012

Over the last ten years, small craft-based distilleries have experienced a new lease of life. Thanks in part to the revival of techniques for the production of  whisky that had been abandoned. And in part to the growing importance assumed by niche producers, outstripping mass production in some aspects. Mackmyra Svensk Whisky is a Swedish distillery located at Gävle (an hour and a half’s drive north of Stockholm) and founded in 1999 by eight friends, all of them students at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. It worked so well that in 2011 the partners decided to construct a new building, the second stage in the creation of what they hope will become a “whisky village.” The new construction, designed by the TEA studio, is intended to fascinate visitors as well: one side of the building has a glass façade, revealing the splendid interiors of the structure, filled with machinery and containers of gleaming metal. Unfortunately, we have no information about guided tours. (via Archdaily)
