Back to the roots
Deep in the dark woods surrounding the ancient town of Roskilde, a majestic building of oak once stood tall and strong.
It was from this seat in the great hall of Kongsgaard, the legendary Vikings ruled and sagas of the kingdom of Denmark began.
Today, staying true to traditions of our ancestors, we craft our gin by hand, distilling in small batches.
An Apple a Day
At the centerpiece of our layers of flavour are Danish apples.
Among the world’s best, famous for the good taste they achieve due to the climatic conditions.
The long warm days in ripening season, are replaced by cool and clear summer nights. Giving the characteristic succulence and well balanced mixture of sweetness and acidity.
We source our apples from small local fruit orchards, situated on little islands in the southern archipelago of Denmark.
The climate here ensures apples with a lot of taste according to a slow growing process and many hours of daylight.
Furthermore the terroir here is exceptional; clay soil, many hours of sunshine, wind and salt coming from the sea.
Matured in nature
Inspired by the tree structure, we built this gin using raw organic botanicals. Aroma takes root in flavours of licorice, ginger & galangal, balanced with infusions of chufa.
Slowly it grows stronger into a base of charred oak – wrapped in cinnamon bark. Extracts of juniper and drops of fossilised resin, lay just beneath the surface, bringing greener piney notes.
At its peak, it will mature and flourish, bearing ripe fruity flavours of whole fresh lemon and crispy danish apple.
How you like them apples
Inspired by the beautiful forests of our native Denmark, the botanical line up, is built around one of nature’s most ingenious constructions:
The tree. Seed & Root – Bark & Branch – Flower & Fruit.
By distilling with a seasonal cut, we get a delightful yearly vintage, to a full-bodied gin, with a crisp bite.
The true craft lies in constantly perfecting balance and harmony, between the 3 aromatic elements found in our raw apples: Sweet fruit sugars, an undertone of mild spice, & slightly tart, fresh acidic notes.
