Product Description

A gorgeous single cask Spirit of Hven single malt whisky, which pays tribute to Saint Nicholas, patron of fishermen and sailors (among others).

For the Sankt Claus release, the Swedish distillers on the tiny island of Hven wanted a whisky that would bring warmth to a cold winter evening. The chosen whisky was matured in French oak casks which previously held Merlot wine, which surely had an influence on its radiant ruby red hue.

A bold, warming, subtly smoky expression, with plenty of red berry, dark chocolate and rich coffee notes throughout.

Hven Sankt Claus was named World Whisky of the Year 2015 by Whisky Advocate.
