Megrez is the forth whisky in the “Seven Stars series” from Spirit of Hven. It is a lightly peated single malt whisky, made from grain to bottle in the small family owned distillery situated on the island of Hven in the strait between Denmark and Sweden. It has got its name from the star Megrez in the asterism Ursa Major (the Plough).

The Base in Megrez is 5% Chocolate malt, 40% Peated malt and 55% Pilsner malt. The distillate has matured on 8,4% French Petraea, 33,4% French Robur and 58,2% American Muehlenbergii. The whisky has had a finish on Spanish Quercus Robur. These 500L marrying casks have previously held Pedro Ximénez Sherry, providing a light note of raisins in the background. The peaty, smoky notes are modest, 26ppm phenols, apparent but not overpowering.

This whisky is bottled at site of the distillery holding 45 vol%, no carbon- or chill filtering, no colour or other additives. It is organic certified and natural, as should be. Every bottle is individually numbered and controlled before being waxed by hand.
