Champagne finished Swedish Single Malt Whisky
Moment Prestige is an eleven year old whisky aged in French oak casks that previously held wine from the artisanal Champagne producer Philipponnat. When the Champagne is being aged in these casks, only the finest grapes are used, resulting in these casks developing crisp notes of white wine, grapefruit, bread and toasted oak for the Whisky.
Fruity, vinous notes on the nose and a herbal spiciness combine with vanilla, toasted oak, pear fudge, warm grapes, white pepper, anise, ginger and cardamom.
Oak and prominent notes of white grapes and grapefruit dominate at the front of the palate. Spicy and herbal notes of eucalyptus, anise and vanilla follow closely. The texture is medium thick with an aftertaste that is long with tangible vinous notes of champagne that evolve towards dry notes of oak.
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.
