Spirit of Hven 7 Stars No.2 Merak Single Malt Whisky
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.
Although Hven only covers an area of 3 square miles and has a population of around 350 inhabitants; from this remarkable island comes some of the highest quality handcrafted spirits produced. Spirit of Hven produces a diverse range of oak matured, organic distillates, described as “Taste & Scent with Sustainability”.
Tasting Notes: A medium smoke single malt whisky, created from barley to bottle at the small family owned distillery situated on the island of Hven in between Denmark and Sweden. Undiluted, without water the whisky shows a nose filled with liquorice and leather, herbal spice and a lingering peat. There is a clear scent of smoke interwined with fresh organe blossoms and rose petails all combined with a light sea breeze of salty ocean.
Behind the light peppery scent a clear note of vanilla and chocolate develops. The taste is fresh stingy with an herbal pepperiness.
