The Njord Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail with a little twist. Usually made with whiskey, we instead used our Distilled Barrel-Aged gin. The perfect drink for people who enjoy their cocktails strong and sharp.

Special editions of our gins have been aged in various barrels for at least one year. Barrels previously used for ageing whisky, Burgundy wines and Sauternes to name a few. Different combinations of distinct gins, ageing times and barrels result in unique new taste experiences. Some of our barrel-aged gins have smokey notes and others have fruity dimensions. These gins are perfect served neat like whisky or cognac, or used in cocktail classics like negroni and old fashioned.
Our latest Distilled And Barrel-aged has a lot of depth and roundness, as well as a unique floral dryness. If you'd like to know more about our spirit and receive special offers year round then you can sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of our page.
