The Smögen distillery was built in 2010 by Swedish lawyer Pär Caldenby, on Sweden’s west coast. The distillery is named after a nearby island. Pär is a whisky enthusiast turned whisky author, turned distiller. Smögen are known for their heavily peated single malts. Whilst small in comparison to Scotland, the distillery in principal follows the Scottish tradition, but is not bound by the rules of Scotch, so can be more experimental and transparent.
Whilst we currently only have one expression available, look for other recent releases, such as Smögen Primör Revisited, Smögen Barriques! and Smögen 8 Years Old at Gauntleys of Nottingham, Nickolls and Perks and Shop4Whisky amongst others.
