Water

A unique source, right on our doorstep

Making whisky involves using very large amounts of water, the majority of which goes towards chilling the distillate. To enjoy the best possible results, this process should go quickly and involve a significant temperature drop. This can be a problem for many distilleries in warmer parts of the world as they have to shut down production during the summer. At Box, we use water from the Ångerman River, which lies on our doorstep. 485m3 of ice-cold water flows past our distillery every second. This produces a distillate of around 3–4°C as opposed to 30°C from Scottish distilleries.
