Tycho's star is made from a mash bill based on three types of barley. The aromas are subtle with rich, dried apricot, orange and sultanas. Elemental, medicinal peat appears with chunky barley, capsicum, black pepper, Assam tea and tar. Lovely integration. The palate shows vanilla-toffee laced dried fruit. The spirit is showing its youthfulness, but it does add a vitality. Long with the saltiness in full swing but it’s balanced by the sherried fruit. Lovely, sooty and  smoky on the finish.

On the island of Hven located in the strait of Öresund between Denmark and Sweden lies Spirit of Hven. Spirit of Hven Backafallsbyn is situated on an island rich in agricultural heritage. The surrounding region is home to some of Sweden’s absolute best producers of agricultural products, which explains why we at Spirit of Hven emphasise use of local raw materials. The Spirit of Hven distillery was founded in 2008, becoming the third pot-still distillery in Sweden and the smallest pot-still distillery in the world. Their single malt Swedish whisky, meanwhile, is Sweden’s first island whisky.
