Breathtaking and dramatic. In the mighty Norwegian forests where sunlight rarely penetrates. In lonely landscapes inhabited only by the ‘Hulder’ wood nymphs, which live below the ground surrounded by the roots of old oaks. This is where Bareksten takes its inspiration from. Nordic, natural and organic ingredients form the basis for its unique flavour.
Norwegian herbs, potatoes and berries fight an intense, slow and never-ending battle in extreme environments. Only the strongest and most stubborn survive. Norwegian ingredients, touched only by nature, form the basis for the raw flavours of Bareksten’s botanical spirits.
The Bareksten Gin, distilled in small batches, gives us a very high potent gin with a sublime fruity expression. Bareksten Gin has a traditional base line, but you will find wild blueberries, lingonberries, rhubarb, elderflower, mint and an additional 20 different ingredients. It is perfect with tonic water and for sure a perfect classic, Dry Martini.
Silent trees. Mighty mountains. Raw nature. Mysterious forests. The taste of berries and herbs squeezed by Norwegian hands. Bareksten is the bottled essence of Norwegian nature. Craft has finally found its spirit.
