Whisky from Öland

As opposed to many other internationally famous spirits (Calvados, Cognac,…) whisky does not have a regionally protected name. You can make whisky anywhere (e.g. in Japan, or on Ireland). Wannborga Distillery & Vineyard and Ölands Farm Brewery have joined together in a project to make whisky on the Swedish island of Öland in the Baltic sea. There is at this time no whisky to taste, but we have tasted their grappa, “calvados”, and “cognac”. Interested whisky fans are invited to invest in the future production – perhaps we can call it “whisky primeur” – to get preferential access once the product is ready. Wannborga is one of three Swedish vineyards on the island of Öland.
