High Coast Single Malts from Sweden

SWEDISH SINGLE MALTS!




High Coast Hav Oak Spice Single Malt Whisky...$53.99
Hav is the Swedish word for Sea.
In the majestic landscape of a world heritage site, High Coast Distillery sits where the beautiful river Ångermanälven merges into the sea. Here, the river is just about to reach the coast and slowly disappear out into the world, just like our single malt whisky.
The message Hav brings to the world is an expression of oak, with a touch of spice and a little northern hardiness.
Origins is a series where we celebrate our heritage. We have embraced our location, history and geography and created four whiskies that reflect these aspects. The Origins quartet is released in selected Systembolaget stores as well as in the ordering range and in selected international markets.


High Coast Berg Spanish Oak Single Malt Whisky...$61.99
BERG – is a sherry matured whisky which has the same natural colour as the Nordingrå granite which can be seen protruding the dramatic landscape of the High Coast. The casks have previously held the flavoursome Pedro Ximénez sherry.

High Coast Timmer Peat Smoke Single Malt Whisky...$61.99
Peated single malt whisky matured in first fill Bourbon barrels.
Timmer is our peated whisky, our humble tribute to the men and women who once lived and worked here. Those who risked their lives fighting icy cold waters as they steered the heavy logs downstream and kept warm by burning fires under the pale moon light.

Many distilleries make fantastic whisky, but a few succeed in making it better than others. As always there is not right or wrong when it comes to personal taste, but quality, accuracy and conditions separate distilleries from each other. There’s a lot of crucial elements that make High Coast distillery unique, here a are few important features.
The Northern Climate

We gladly admit that we are at the absolute outskirts of the whisky world. Far from the motorways and far from the world’s whisky stores, but we are where we are because we know what the nature up here provides to us. It is not the northern nature in itself that makes our whisky special – even if the forests, expanses and the high clean air certainly do their part. We do not believe that there is any distillery in the world that has such large temperature variations in its warehouses as the High Coast Distillery.


The temperature variations between summer and winter and between day and night are dramatic in Norrland. A cold winter can take the temperature to 30 degrees below zero and hot summer days it can be almost 70 degrees warmer. Whisky that matures in the large, unheated warehouses is exposed to the enormous forces of nature. During hot days, the pressure in the barrels increase, the whisky expands and penetrates deeper into the oak. Deep inside the barrel, the oak’s flavours are released, which come out when the temperature and pressure drop again. The temperature changes are ongoing, day and night. They accelerate parts of the maturation process and contribute to a unique flavor development.....read more on their website
