The swedish bar with the largest collection of whiskies

In Sweden, the city of Öland will soon be known as the city where is located the bar with the largest collection of whiskies in the world.

With more than a thousand different varieties of whiskies, the hotel bar Skansen in Färjestaden is in the process of becoming the privileged meeting place of the amateurs of whiskies.


A collection in perpetual increase

It’s thanks to this impressive collection of whiskies that the Skansen Hotel Bar will be entering the Guinness Book of Records in June this year. Collector of whiskey bottles for almost twenty years, Fredrik Norén, the hotel’s chef, is a whiskey enthusiast. Since the year 2000, he has travelled all over the world in search of the rarest and most emblematic bottles. Today, his collection has more than a thousand bottles (1179 very exactly). But it is certain that he will not stop there and that the record will undoubtedly continue to be improved. Fredrik Norén also confirmed it to the media. In brief, Norén has not finished his quest of new bottles yet to enrich its great collection.
