BOX DISTILLERY Box DALVVE
On the banks of the Angerman River in Adalen, northern Sweden, lies the former Box Power Station. Once used to supply electricity to the largest timber floating station in the world, the factory fell silent in the 1980s and lay derelict until it was bought in 1991 by artist, Mats De Vahl and converted into an art gallery.
Many years later, Mats visited Scotland with his brother Per. So inspired were they by the nation’s whisky, they decided to create their own distillery back home. After years of planning, their dream finally came to fruition when spirit ran from the Box stills in December of 2010.
