Learn more about whisky in three steps

Hällsnäs whiskey school is a standing whiskey event at Hällsnäs. Here, those who love whiskey can learn about the entire barrel journey, from start to finish, by Håkan Jortby, who is responsible for Mackmyra’s whiskey warehouse at Hällsnäs.

Hällsnäs School of Whisky

With a passion for whiskey in general and Mackmyra in particular, Håkan Jortby is responsible for our warehouse at Hällsnäs. It’s not only the whiskey in it’s komplexity that attracts him but everything behind it. Often when talking about history we speak in past tense but with whiskey you could say that you live in the now but enjoy the past.

In Hällsnäs School of Whiskey you get to learn about the three stages of the cask.

“My intention with this school is to give a glimpse in the wonderful world of whiskey. We will travel from the 1490’s all the way til the present.”
