Mackmyra Jaktlycka (Happy hunting) is a Swedish single malt whisky that celebrates autumn, berry foraging and the treasures to be found in the ancient Swedish woods.

As you savour Jaktlycka an engaging trail of blueberries and lingonberries is revealed, as the whisky was predominantly matured in casks that previously held Swedish berry wine from the craft producer Grythyttan.

The essence of the whisky is our elegant recipe, aged in casks of Swedish and American oak, combined with a handful of smoky recipe casks for an inviting depth.

Nose:Spicy with warm fruity grape tones and notes of herbs. Soft vanilla oak with aromas of anise, ginger, raisins, pear caramel and vanilla.


Mouth:Soft fruity and spicy with berries and dried fruit. Pear, raisins, ginger and vanilla. The texture is creamy and medium-bodied.


Summary:Berry, fruity, spicy and oaky with warm notes of raisins.

The Story of Jaktlycka

Jakt (meaning hunt) is a dry, fresh red wine made from wild blueberries and lingonberries from the forests of Bergslagen in central Sweden. The wine has a clear ruby-red colour and fresh aromas of forest berries and oak.


Ripe, freshly-picked blueberries set the tone in Grythyttan Jakt, with the combination of sweetness and acidity providing a pleasant fruitiness. The red gold of the forest, lingonberries, contribute acidity and bitterness to enhance the crispness of the wine.

Awards & Reviews

Angela D'Orazio, Master Blender at Mackmyra


“Jaktlycka is a warm and soft whisky filled with treasures from the forests. The notes of berries, together with the wonderful spicy contribution from Swedish oak, generate a fantastic flavour that embodies the Swedish forest and autumn.

The result is a creamy and berrylike whisky with a softly embedded spiciness and notes of dried fruit, vanilla and raisins. It will make a classic companion to milk chocolate desserts.”
