The Spirit of a New Generation

WE HAVE TRANSFORMED AQUAVIT AND REIMAGINED IT

We journeyed back centuries, to aquavit’s Scandinavian origin. To a time when Viking descendants first created the iconic Nordic spirit. They used what they could source locally. They were farmers and forgers. Growing and picking native grains, herbs, and botanicals.

Over time, many of the ancient recipes have disappeared. We aspired to re-discover aquavit and re-envision it. To re-create it using locally-sourced botanicals that have flourished here since our Vikings ancestors roamed these lands.

SEA BUCKTHORN

Known as the “Viking vitamin” sea buckthorn is chalked full of nutrients and antioxidants. It grows wild against the unforgiving Norwegian coastline and high in the mountains, where competing plants don’t grow. A staple in the Viking diet, sea buckthorn has been used in traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicines for over 2,000 years. It has 4x the vitamin c of an orange and is the only plant that contains all 4 omega fatty acids.

NORDIC CLOUDBERRY

The most prized berries in the Nordics, cloudberries are lush and loaded with antioxidants. Unable to be harvested, these precious arctic berries grow wild around the Artic circle and must be foraged. They are so rare and sought-after, their growing locations are kept secret and passed on from generation to generation. The berries contain a sweet and tart juice that adds a floral and structure elegance to our aquavit.
