Ivan Abrahamsen confirmed

Ivan Abrahamsen, R&D Director and Master Blender at Arcus Norway, called us and asked if he could come and say a few words. We clapped our hands in joy, and gave him a full master class. Ivan is responsible for the production of classics like Lysholm Linie and Gammel Opland, and he is one of the most knowledgable personalities in the aquavit industry today.


New Master Class

Nick Kobbernagel-Hovind, the brain behind the cocktails at renowned places like Ruby, Lidkoeb and Brønnum will be presenting a master class on the use of aquavit in cocktails from the early days in 2010 and up till now. Ruby was a pioneer in the work with aquavit in the Scandinavian cocktail scene, and we can't wait to hear his insights.


Hansen Is and aquavit

Inspired by the botanicals used in aquavit Hansen Is has made a couple of ice creams and will be selling from an ice cream van at the festival. Delish? Oh yesh!


Pop-ups!

We are glad to inform that a series of pop-up events are coming together in the days leading up to Spirikum.

on the 24th of August Long Road Distillers are taking over the bar at Duck and Cover. Kyle and his team will talk about their work with aquavit, while Kasper and the Duck and Cover lads make drinks. They are scheduled to start around 9pm.

We are also working on a mash-up between Barr and Bareksten Spirits, and a distillers dinner at Øl og Brød, but stay tuned for more news.


Hello and goodbye

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Lilla Spritfabriken from Skåne has had to call in sick, but their spot is promptly taken by The Helsinki Distilling Company and their Fiskehamns Akvavit. Good stuff!
