On the Island of Hven located in the strait of Öresund between Denmark and Sweden lies the Spirit of Hven distillery. Founded in 2008, this family owned distillery became the third pot still distillery ever to be built in Sweden and is one of the world's smallest commercial pot distilleries.
Spirit of Hven Alioth is the fifth in the Spirit of Hven Seven Stars series. It is a moderately peated single malt whisky, named after the star Alioth in the asterism Ursa Major (the Plough). The name derives from the Arabic, alyat, meaning “the tail of a sheep” referring to the position in the asterism, and it is the brightest star in the constellation.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of seaweed, distant bonefire, honey, raisins and dried plums. There are clear chocolate notes together with a dry citric scent. Very dry palate, from the fresh oak and mature Oloroso.
