Mackmyra Grönt Te is one of our most innovative creations to date
Mackmyra Grönt Te (Green Tea) is a Swedish single malt whisky that has been finished in newly saturated Ex-Oloroso casks. A blend of oloroso wine and the finest vintage Japanese green tea leaves have seasoned the casks, providing a subtly spicy and flavourful whisky with a fruity and floral finish. The whisky has notes of fine vanilla, green apples and herbal green tea. Grönt Te is light amber in colour with subtle red reflections and is great to enjoy on any occasion.

The Story of Grönt Te
In 2019 Mackmyra's Master Blender, Angela D’Orazio, was also honoured with a place in Whisky Magazine’s prestigious Hall of Fame. To show appreciation to Angela’s achievement, she was given the opportunity to add her own personal touch to this spring’s innovative seasonal whisky expression. Mackmyra Grönt te is inspired by her passions: experiencing new cultures and creating exciting taste sensations in whisky.
“It’s been a real pleasure to be able to put the limits of whisky to the test and create this spring’s seasonal whisky. I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved together, and I look forward with confidence to creating new exciting taste sensations.” Angela D’Orazio, Master Blender at Mackmyra.
Certified Japanese Tea adviser, Yuko Ono Sthlm.Producing Japanese tea is in many ways similar to the production of whisky as they both share the same values in quality, taste and aroma experiences. We are very conscious that our product is handled with care, and we felt very comfortable handing our Japanese tea over to Angela. Working on this project with Angela has been fun and extremely educational and I am very excited that Japanese tea can be used as a flavour in such an experimental way. Mackmyra Grönt Te raises the character and flavours of the tea giving the whisky a unique aroma and taste inspired by Sweden and Japan.
