Originally founded as a pilot distillery in March 1999, Mackmyra’s Bruk Distillery is the result of a group of friends having a conversation about why there wasn’t a Swedish malt whisky distillery while on a skiing holiday the year before, with the first distillate flowing from the condenser on 18 December 1999. By spring 2002, early experimental distillations had produced two recipes: Mackmyra Elegant and Mackmyra Smoke. Construction of their new distillery, called Gravitation at the Mackmyra Bruk mill commenced the same year.

Water is sourced from an underground spring fed by the Valboasen Mountain, some of the casks used are made from Swedish Oak felled on the island of Visingso, and the whisky is aged 50 metres underground in the Bodås mine.
