A beautiful Swedish single malt with incredible depth
The passion project of Mackmyra’s master blender, the Grönt Te is a culmination of her passion for experiencing globals cultures and her love of whisky. Newly saturated ex-Oloroso casks are seasoned with some of the finest green tea leaves in the world. The marriage of these two thoroughly different ingredients results in an innovative combination of flavours that excite the senses. The leaves used are stunning Yame Sencha, Yame Gyokuro, Kaoribo Hojicha and Yame Matcha Shinobi varieties.
The nose is spicy and floral with red berries and fruits followed by subtle notes of green tea, white pepper and roasted vanilla. Dried grapes, citrus, pear and forest berries follow secondarily.
In the mouth, the palate has a fruity and floral finish with fine vanilla, deep herbal green tea notes, green apples and a lingering light spiciness.
The distillery is home to some of the purest water in the world of spirits, filtered to near perfection since the Ice Age. Located next to this incredible water source, the Mackmyra distillery also prides itself in using primarily new Swedish oak barrels.
They bring an incredible passion and understanding of classic whisky production techniques to the table whilst operating one of the most exciting modern distilleries in the world. The Mackmyra distillers use 100% Swedish ingredients without additives while continuing the pursuit of low environmental impact.
