Peated single malt whisky matured in first fill Bourbon barrels.
Timmer is our peated whisky, our humble tribute to the men and women who once lived and worked here. Those who risked their lives fighting icy cold waters as they steered the heavy logs downstream and kept warm by burning fires under the pale moon light.
Origins is a series where we celebrate our heritage. We have embraced our location, history and geography and created four whiskies that reflect these aspects. The Origins quartet is released in selected Systembolaget stores as well as in the ordering range and in selected international markets.
Timmer launched May 2nd in local Monopoly stores in Västernorrland as well as nationally available via the order range. Naturally you can order Timmer to your own local Systembolaget store as well as ordering online.

Until October 2014, our casks have matured in a damp warehouse, where they lost slightly more alcohol than expected. Since October 2014 until bottling, the casks have been maturing in a dry environment in warehouse number 3.
04/04/2019 50 Bourbon barrels containing 6455 kilos of whisky, with an average strength of 60,69% abv, were emptied into our blending tank. There we added, 1963 kilos of water to reach the desired strength of 48% abv.
We recommend that Timmer is allowed to breathe in the glass for a few moments to reach its peak. Add a few drops of water to help the aromas develop within the glass.

The Origin Series
Origins is a tribute to our beginnings and our heritage from the banks of Ångermanälven river, where it meets and becomes part of the sea, where generations have worked with timber rafting alongside the dramatic mountain landscape of the High Coast.
