ALBA is a meeting between northern Swedish whisky craftsmanship and American nature: an encounter that has lingered and deepened over the years.
Experience has shown us that when our pristine and pure distillate matures in casks of new American white oak, something sparks that could be called magic, but which of course is mostly chemistry.
We have used new American oak casks as a finish on some of our most appreciated bottlings, enjoying both the results of the flavors and the appreciation of the whisky world. So, it is fantastic to now be able to present a whisky that has spent most of its time in casks of new American white oak. We have chosen to call it ALBA, after the American white oak, Quercus alba.
The storage time was 8.3 years. This is perhaps the most important difference between ALBA and its predecessors. The time. New things happen when our distillate is allowed to rest longer in the arms of the white oak. Time develops a complexity that really delivers.
