Swedish whiskey debuts today in Canada

The Swedish company Mackmyra Distilleri, please with the reception it received when it introduced its malt whiskey to the U.S. last spring, today made its debut in Canada.

The Société des Alcools du Québec (SAQ) launched Mackmyra's The 1st Edition through its outlets in Montréal and Quebec city.

1st Edition is made in Sweden entirely from Swedish ingredients, then stored in ex-bourbon casks and new Swedish oak casks, the latter to add a distinctive spiciness to the bourbon-touched spirit.

SAQ is a government-owned corporation responsible for the trade of alcoholic beverages within the Province of Quebec.
