GUSTAV ARCTIC BRAMBLE LIQUEUR 21%


This traditional liqueur was awarded two gold medals at the Paris world fair in 1900. The liqueur's most important raw material, the Arctic bramble, grows only in Northern Finland.

Following tradition, we extract the essence of the berries to create a flavour which can be compared to fruity chocolate. Arctic Bramble liqueur is good as an apéritif and perfect in cocktails. Also try it with soft-ripened cheeses and as a sauce over desserts.

Sugar: 310 g/ l
Colour: Dark red
Nose: Aromatic, rich in Arctic bramble aromas
Taste: Quite sweet, aromatic, round, full bodied, warm
Bottle: 500 ml/ glass

LAZY WEEKEND

LAZY WEEKEND


The northern daylight is misty, but strong enough to create a magical glow and sparkle to the untouched snow blanket. There, where the lake frozen to white plains begins, is a hut that has seen thousands of similar frosty days. It is winter, but the road has been cleared to celebrate the weekend. The arctic chilliness is lessened by adding wood to the stove.

In Finland, a country of five million people close to the northern Arctic Circle, there are more than half million huts. Most of them are in use in the wintertime as well, and don’t have conveniences like running water and electricity. Simplicity offers a permission to relax and focus on the basic things of life. Longing to nature is written in the Scandinavian dna.

Every weekend a light glimmers in the frosty windows of the huts built on the lakefronts and in the forest ends of the roads. Also young citizens head out from the urban pulse, put on handmade knitted stockings, pour a glass of their favorite drink and snuggle under a blanket to enjoy the wonderful laziness.
