WINTER

We spent years, travelling the northern hemisphere for inspiration. Collecting slow-growing herbs, perma-frozen roots and wind-tormented plants. But dark are the days of wintertide, so we wanted to create something uplifting. A classic London dry gin, infused with the familiar scents and wonderful aromas of a Scandinavian winter feast — cinnamon, cardamom, oranges, cloves and rowan-berries.

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.”
