Berg

BERG – is a sherry matured whisky which has the same natural colour as the Nordingrå granite which can be seen protruding the dramatic landscape of the High Coast. The casks have previously held the flavoursome Pedro Ximénez sherry.

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. Berg was released October 1st 2019.

Berg won two Gold Medals at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2019 in the categories of Best Swedish Whisky and Best World Wide Whisky.

  • Recipe

    Berg consists of 100% unpeated whisky which was first matured in first fill Bourbon barrels and then finished in first fill sherry casks, previously used for the maturation on Pedro Ximénez (PX) sherry.

    First matured in Bourbon barrels for 3.61-4.88 years then transferred to PX barrels for final maturation between 0.67-2.31 years.
    – Ninety nine,  55 liter casks 6.61-6.62 years (matured in bourbon barrels for 4.67 years)
    – Seven, 250 liter casks, 5.93 years (matured in bourbon barrels for 3.61 years)
    – Three, 200 liter casks, 6.31 years (matured in bourbon barrels for 5.63 years)
    – Three, 120 liter casks, 5.56 years (matured in bourbon barrels for 4.88 years)

    Berg contains no artificial colouring and is non chill-filtered

  • Casks used

    200 liter Bourbon barrels (Quercus Alba), delivered empty direct from Kentucky

    Sherry casks made from American oak and filled with sherry in Spain.

    PX Casks of 120 and 200 liters matured the sherry for 15 years with very old PX.

    55 Liter casks were filled for approximately 12 months while 250 liter casks were filled on three occassions during 2,5 years.

    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 dry environments in warehouses 2 & 3.

    Between 13/09/2019 to 16/09/2019, 112 PX casks holding 6994 kilos of whisky, with an abv of 59.74%, were emptied into our blending tank. 1550 kilos of water was added to reach the desired alcohol strength of 50% abv. The whisky was bottled in the morning of 17/09/2019 at 08.30.

    We recommend that Berg 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 Origins 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.
