Spirit of Hven 7 Stars No 6:1 Mizar 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.
Described as “Taste & Scent with Sustainability”, Spirit of Hven produces a diverse range of oak matured distillates; with the heart and soul of the distillery being the production of world acclaimed single malt whiskies.
In fact, their single malt whisky was Sweden’s first ever island whisky. Handcrafted using only certified organic ingredients, distilled in unique copper pot stills, matured in oak casks and bottled without additives or prior chill filtration; each spirit is one of a kind with an enticing character and sensational flavour. Everything from distillation to the bottling is done on site. Each bottle is individually numbered and approved before they are hand signed.
Tasting Notes: The first nose gives sweet liquorice and vanilla. A light smokiness with spicy notes of raisins and cacoa. Hints of chamomile backed by violet and banana scents.The taste is potent with a clear, but not over-powering, smokiness. Strict acidity balanced by discrete wood sugars.
