The Floating  Warehouse

A Mackmyra Whisky warehouse is not just any warehouse. We see them as destinations for extraordinary experiences and our latest destination, Barge 166 in Paris is no exception. The floating cellar by Maison Ferrand started as a crazy idea, ”what if we could store casks on River Seine?”. Well, now the idea is a reality. Spirit producer Maison Ferrand, store their Plantation Rum and Ferrand Cognac casks onboard their newly renovated Barge and it is here we store our whisky as well, and we are very curious about how this will effect the maturation.

Store your whisky on the River Seine

The barge has its permanent dock on the Seine in Issy-Les-Moulineaux, not far from Paris and its classical sights. With our permanent warehousing spots onboard, you now have the possibility to buy and store your private cask in a totally unique setting. These coveted spaces are limited to 400 and spots are running out quickly, so don’t wait too long if you are interested in this location.

Dynamic Maturation: On-Board Impact

Storing whisky on board a ship or barge have always interested us, both in a romantic and scientific way. When the liquid inside the cask is set in motion due to the barges' movements, it creates a special chemical reaction with the cask impacting how the whisky will develop in taste and aroma. The humidity and temperature also varies on Barge 166.
