Magic pulled from the cask, 11:45 (approx. 70 min)
Distillery Manager Roger Melander watches like a hawk over 10000 casks in our warehouses. For reasons which we won’t go into, he believes all the casks are his own. We don’t doubt that, he knows whats hidding in the depths of the warehouses. Welcome to an unorthodox tasting where Roger delivers high octane favourites straight from the casks.
Roger Melander, 300 kr/person, 100 seats. Saturday.
Quercus – A study of oak, 17:00 (approx 70 min)
It’s in the oak it happens. Simply put if you don’t have good oak you can’t make good whisky. However, it does need a bit of love and attention to bring out the best aspects it holds. Few know more about the oak’s secrets than Roger Melander. Welcome to an educational journey.

Exklusive Tasting, 13:45 (approx 70 min) SOLD OUT
Whisky obviously doesn’t have to be better just because it’s more expensive. But, unfortunately, it is often the case. High Coast’s own Lars Karlsson has an incomparable nose for better whisky. In this tasting, he focuses his aromatic skills a little more than usual and pours some incredible drams in this master class.

A taste of High Coast, . 17:15 (approx 70 min) SOLD OUT
There is a lot of excitement hidden within Box / High Coast whisky, whisky you forgot and whisky you never got a chance to see. We asked Lars to take an extra look in the warehouses and sniff out those drams with that little extra.
Lars Karlsson, 400 kr/person, 45 seat. Saturday.
From timber to whisky, 15:00 (approx 70 min)
The story of wood i Ådalen started long before whisky and long before Box. With timber and the river as the common denominator, Peter takes us back to how it once was and how it developed into where we are now. This will be done accompanied by five whiskies selected from the BOX era.
Peter Söderlind, 300 kr/person, 45 seats. Saturday.
A midsummer evenings smoke, 18:00
