Sorry for the confusion, everyone! We have been honoring the true Swedish spelling of the word skål, using an “a” with a small “o” sitting above it. This has caused some questions as to whether it’s skoal or skal. The definitive answer: “skoal” is acceptable, but using “skal” is not the same thing.
On a PC, you can recreate “å” by holding down the Alt key and pressing the number sequence: 134 (Alt+134)
If you would like to write the word “skål” on a Mac, simply use your Keyboard Viewer to change your default language to Swedish. The “[” button will appear on the keyboard viewer as the “å” button.
