Family-owned Bergslagens Destilleri was founded in 2014 and is currently run by the Lihnell family. The distillery primarily produces whisky and gin, but also other spirits such as aquavit and rum. The distillery is located in an old industrial building that previously housed a slaughterhouse on the outskirts of Örebro, next to a nature reserve in the district of Almby. Our inspiration comes from the region, its creativity and joy of creation. Our products and work reflect the area's curiosity for the new and the respect for the traditions and history that exist here. At the distillery, we also have our warehouse where whisky and gin mature under perfect conditions inside the old slaughterhouse premises. We also bottle all our products in-house.
Bergslagen is an area in central Sweden that was previously known for its mining industry with many small mines and quarries. The region is surrounded by deep forests, rivers and mountains with abundant wildlife and plant life. Today, new businesses have emerged in Bergslagen, with several small local food producers finding inspiration in the surrounding nature. The availability of raw materials is good, with plenty of game, berries, mushrooms and crops grown in the fertile soil. Bergslagen has now transformed into a food region.
There was previously a whisky distillery called Grythyttan Whisky AB that produced whisky between 2010 and 2013. The distillery was located a few miles outside of Örebro and produced approximately 35,000 liters during those years. The whisky is known for its high quality, and whisky enthusiasts hold great respect for the product.
During the summer of 2016, we at Bergslagens Destilleri purchased the remaining stock of barrels and since then, the whisky has been aging at our own warehouse in central Örebro. Our job now is to manage this puzzle piece in Swedish whisky history, which some refer to as Sweden's answer to Port Ellen.
We carefully go through all the casks and plan for different types of releases for interested buyers. The interest is very high, and it is due to mainly three things. It is Swedish whisky, it holds very high quality, and above all, it is Sweden's first "Silent Distillery", meaning not a drop more will be produced from Grythyttan Whisky AB.
