Kreatör jin is a modern, artisan-produced gin with a classic taste incorporating Swedish flavours and carefully selected organic ingredients distilled in the traditional copper pot-still in the beautiful Mackmyra Bruk mill in Gästrikland.
When Mackmyra opened for business in 1999 they were the only whiskey distillery in Sweden and also the most northerly one in the world. At that time their distillery was a very small-scale business using a copper boiler with a capacity of only 100 litres. It was in this pilot distillery that they developed their recipes. At the same time, the friends proved to the outside world that it is possible to create an excellent malt whisky using the ingredients and under the conditions that they have in Sweden. Mackmyra started up Lab Distillery in summer 2017 at Mackmyra’s original distillery at Mackmyra Bruk. The aim was to be able to develop new, innovative, artisanally crafted categories of spirits under its own brand, Lab Distillery, together with committed craft distillers, companies and individuals that dream of producing their very own variety of spirit. The first product, Kreatör [jin], was launched in autumn 2017. It is an organic artisan gin co-developed with craft distiller Rickard Aldén.
The Mackmyra Kreatör jin has a wonderful nose of Juniper and raspberry, with a hint of coriander, this creates a sensation of the Swedish forest on the palate. The nose has hints of sweet vanilla and cardamom and the length introduces distinct, lingering tones of citrus.
Botanicals: Juniper, lime, grape, lemon, orange, coriander, cardamom, Seville orange, vanilla, pink pepper, cinnamon, ginger, elderberry, anise, lingonberry and raspberry.
