Aquavit is a classic caraway brandy and is one of the most popular distilled drinks in Scandinavia. This particular brand, "Överste Brännvin" (engl.: Colonel Brandy) was created by count and colonel Hugo Jacob Hamilton in the early 1880‘s. He created this recipe just for himself! He was located in Örebro in central Sweden, and found a distillery that would distill his very own, personal aquavit. Only when Hamilton passed away in 1896, the recipe for this special "Överste Brännvin" was allowed to be used for commercial production.

The "Överste Brännvin" was very popular until about 2008, when production stopped after Pernod Ricard‘s takeover of the Swedish drinks manufacturer Vin & Sprit (”Wine & Liquor”). For ten years, the name rights and recipe where subject to Pernod Ricard, until an arrangement was made to transfer the brand rights and recipe to a group of Swedish gourmets, retired colonels, and a governor in 2018. The group had already decided on a distillery to make the "Överste Brännvin" when Mikael Norell of Svensk Absint heard about this project. His distillery is located in Örebro where this legendary aquavit was first made, therefore it made sense to all participants to work together on the resurrection of this unique recipe.

As of 2018, the "Överste Brännvin" is distilled in small batches according to the original recipe from the 1880’s from natural herbs by the same geniuses who created Grön Opal Absinthe and Vit Opal, and their unique Kilsbergen Gin.

Enjoy this unique aquavit chilled in a small, stemmed glass. When you toast, you can say ”Skål!”

Svensk Absint, Sweden


The Svensk Absint Distillery is a small distillery in Örebrom, Sweden. It was founded by Mikael Norell and Tomas Runnquist in 2009.

After several years of hard work and many distillation tests, the two friends put their first two absinthes on the market: the Vit Opal and the Grön Opal. The Vit Opal (White Opal) is the first Blanche absinthe ever produced in Sweden. Every step in the production is done by hand: from the growing and harvesting of the best plants to the bottling and the labelling.

The Svensk Absinthe Distillery focuses on small batches made with high quality selected ingredients, that both friends harvest by hand. Almost all plants come from the distillery's herb garden: roman wormwood (Artemisia pontica), melissa, hyssop and many other ingredients, carefully picked by hand. This allows a better control of the plants' quality. The high quality is particularly important to Mikael and Tomas, which explains why they spend the largest part of their time in the herb garden.

The grand-wormwood, one of absinthe's most important ingredients, is not cultivated, but rather foraged from the wild. It is only found in certain locations in Sweden. The amount of absinthe they can produce depends on how much wormwood they harvest in August. After the harvest, the absinthe is brought back home and hung up for drying in the distillery's attic for one year. The aroma of these two absinthes is particularly intense and fragrant. The distiller himself says that this wormwood is of much better quality than any cultivated ones.

The distillation takes place in a 125l still, filled only to 90l. After the distillation, the absinthe is stocked in barrels for at least three months before being bottled, to ensure a rounded flavour.

Ecological thinking is very important to Mikael and Tomas: they are careful to respect nature when growing their herbs and foraging their wormwood, and a large array of solar panels provides the distillery with power.
