Phecda is the third whisky in the series “Seven Stars” from Spirit of Hven. It is a medium peated single malt whisky, created from barley to bottle in a small family owned distillery situated on the island of Hven in the strait between Denmark and Sweden. The name derives from the star Phecda in the asterism Ursa Major (the Plough).

As its predecessors Dubhe and Merak, this whisky is fine-tuned and gentle with a youthful freshness even if it shows a bit more maturity than the earlier two. During maturation the phenols, primarily the ones characterized with scent of leather and liquorice notes, have accentuated, giving a more full bodied mouthfeel. Maturation was conducted on Quercus Muehlenbergii from Missouri and Quercus Petraea from Allier. The American oak gives toffee and vanilla, and the French oak, liqourice and pepperiness.

This whisky is bottled at site of the distillery holding 45 vol%, no carbon- or chill filtering, no colour or other additives. It is organic certified and natural, as should be. Every bottle is individually numbered and controlled before being waxed by hand.
