Lab+Distillery is dedicated to the craftsmanship and culture of craft liquor. Here we test, explore and bring new ideas to life together with skilled craftsmen within the drinking-sphere.
Our distillery at Mackmyra Bruk is located somewhat 12 kilometers west of the city of Gävle. If there’s a place for everyone – this is the one for us. Here, with influences from the Swedish landscape, we took our first steps towards becoming the distillery we are today. Now we’re back for another round, in a new creative shape.
The distillery at Mackmyra Bruk was opened in 2002 and is a full scale pot-still distillery. It’s here that Mackmyra distilled their first single malt whisky up until year 2011, when the Gravity distillery in Mackmyra Whisky village opened and the production was moved. In 2017, the distillery at Mackmyra Bruk was brought back up and running under the name Lab+Distillery by Mackmyra, with the purpose to produce new innovative spirit-categories in collaboration with skilled craft distillers.

Our first gin is to greatest possible extent produced out of Swedish, carefully chosen, organic ingredients. Which have all been treated thoroughly by hand and then distilled in the classic pot-still at Mackmyra Bruk.
Juniper and raspberry, with a hint of coriander, create a sensation of Swedish forest. The scent hints of sweet vanilla and cardamom. And with the aftertaste, we’re introduced to distinct, lingering tones of citrus. Enjoy this Gin just as it is, on the rock's, or in a classic Gin & Tonic.
Botanicals: Juniper, lime, grape, lemon, orange, coriander, cardamom, Seville orange, vanilla, pink pepper, cinnamon, ginger, elderberry, anise, lingonberry and raspberry.

We started out as a whisky producer and therefore we mature some of our gin on our whisky casks. It’s all ex bourbon cask and you can choose between a cask that previous matured our elegant or smoky whisky recipe.
The result is a gin with a character of cask and, if you choose the smoky one, a hint of smoke.
We mature our gin in 6 month on cask and we sell it in cases of 12 bottles (50 cl). You can choose to pick up your bottles at Systembolaget or from our partner in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.

We’re happy to introduce our very first craft distiller Rickard Aldén. Rickard started working at the distillery already at young age and has now returned from studying at KTH and in Japan. He is the creator of Kreatör [jin].
“Kreatör [jin] has been produced without compromises and I’ve spent months finding the right spices and distilling over 200 different styles of flavor during the summer. I had a clear vision of what qualities our gin should have, and that’s exactly where I landed – if not better.” – Says Rickard.
