Natural ingredients from the wilderness surrounding us. Crystal clear spring water from the fjells above. Artisanal gin — with a taste of Scandinavia.

Local’s edition

Knowing that mountain people are hard to please, we needed something special for the eclectic locals in our home town Åre. So we took our No6 recipe, tasting of Juniper, Pine and Heather, and added generous amounts of Old-mans Beard Lichen and Birch Bark for a slightly more distinct character. A limited edition London dry gin, inspired by the fjells, forests and people of western Jämtland.

Rosé gin

Life in the north is diverse. After a long, dark, and extremely cold winter — days grow longer, and life spurs. For those endless summer nights, when the sun never sets, and the song of the Black-throated Loon echoes, we created something different. Again, we took inspiration from the forests. Rosé Gin is a traditional-ish gin but with a distinct Jämtlandish quirkiness, distilled using unfiltered mountain spring water and infused with Scandinavian curiosities like Alpine Strawberry, Heather, and the elusive Arctic Bramble.

Number 6

We spent more than two years. Travelling the northern hemisphere for inspiration. Collecting slow-growing herbs, perma-frozen roots and wind-tormented plants. Creating hundreds of blends, tested in thousands of gin tonics and dry martinis. Eventually, we ended up with eight finalists. This one, No. 6, was the winner. An artisanal, small-batch, London dry gin. Distilled using unfiltered mountain spring water and natural ingredients. Classic, but with a Scandinavian twist, from Juniper, Pine, Heather and Old-mans Beard Lichen.

The stripes

The colorful stripes on the label provides a visual cue to the content. An infographic about the actual ingredients, each represented by a specific color, the recipe and what the gin tastes like. For example; The No6 Gin and the Local’s Edition Gin have many ingredients in common, but the latter has more Old Mans Beard-lichen (a light grayish-green color), and added Birch Bark (a hazy white color). The Rosé Gin includes Alpine Strawberry, Heather and Arctic Bramble — all represented on the label in various reddish-pink colors. We are looking forward to adding many more beautiful colors to our future Scandinavian Gin blends.

THE SHORT STORY

”We live in a nature reserve, in the tiny village of Vallbo, near the ski resort Åre in the Swedish mountains. We’ve been working as sommeliers and bartenders all our lives, and moved here to get away from it all. Now we are mountain bike guides, and run a small mountain station restaurant. We go riding our bikes or go skiing, by ourselves or with clients, more than 200 days a year.
     It was during one of those days, when the light and the calm and the smell of the forests and the waters and the lichen and the heaths enfolded us — a scent of pine, and herbs, and flowers — that’s when the idea came up; to make gin that tasted just like the nature surrounding us.
     So now we also run a Gin distillery in Åre — and it’s a dream come true. We sincerely hope that you will like our products, and that you will follow us on our little quest to produce fantastic gin, with a taste of Scandinavia.”
