Sweden’s Mackmyra Svensk Whisky has announced its plans to list on the stock market later this year, adding that it is now looking for a CFO to help accomplish the task.

“Distillery construction is going really well and we expect production to get underway this year. The construction is already higher than the treetops,” Mackmyra founder and CEO Magnus Dandanell said in a statement on Sunday.

The company produced Sweden’s first malt whisky 13 years ago in Valbo about 10 kilometres southwest of Gävle in eastern Sweden.

The company was established in 1999 and now produces the equivalent of 600,000 flasks of whisky each year.
