An exploration in taste, Swedish style.
 
Founded in 2008, the Spirit of Hven Distillery became the third pot still distillery in Sweden and the smallest in the World. It is based on the Island of Hven, with a population of only 300-400. The distillery boasts of its green, organic approach to distilling, taking up to two years to produce its Gin and Vodka. A testament to its quality is the fact that Hven Gin is the only Gin served at Noma, a Copenhagen restaurant that boasts the title of best restaurant in the World.
 
Merak is the second product in the limited edition line of Seven Stars, with four more still to be released. Named after a star in the Ursa Major Constellation (AKA The Big Dipper), Merak is an exploration in taste. This organic Whisky has been aged in a mix of American, Spanish and French oak barrels and is a blend of only 25 casks. To maintain the naturalness of the spirit, it has not been chill filtered. Bottled by hand, no less.
