Trying to tame the untameable During 12 months and 4 seasons we have enjoyed exploring and picking wild Danish botanicals - not for distilling - but for a cocktail and foodpurpose. More specifically wegave ourselves the fun job to develop matching gincocktail and food recipes based on wild nature. And we gave ourselves the additionalchallenge to let each seasonal botanical play a key role in both cocktail and food recipes.
These ‘leg spans’ have contributed to a universe of new and fascinating taste experiences where you can discover the same piece of nature tasting different in the cocktail compared to the food - but still with a surprisingly sublime match.
We have written the outcome of our efforts in our new cocktail/food book called “UTÆMMET - Vild naturi mad og cocktails” (in Danish). In all modesty, we love the book and its recipes – and we think you’ll like it too.Enjoy your foraging,your reading of the book- andnot at least the results of your cooking and cocktail efforts.

The cocktail called Golden Nugget is created by Mari-Liis Lvov . The inspiration behind the Golden Nugget came from the cumin aroma in our gin, which reminded her of Indian cuisine and a warm Turkish drink made with milk, turmeric and honey.
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.
