The spirit of Norway. Bottled.

Made in Bergen, Norway, at the Oss Craft Distillery, Bareksten Gin is fairly new to the market, but that hasn’t stopped it (quite rightly) causing a bit of a stir already. Last year, Bareksten was awarded the much-coveted double gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. What’s more, it was awarded top marks by all 42 judges… In a blind taste test.

Intrigued? We’re just getting started. Bareksten takes inspiration from the Nordic legend of ‘Hulder’ or wood nymphs, and from the dense Norwegian forest, where the sunlight can barely reach, as well as the country’s ancient craft traditions. Inspired by raw nature and vast forests, Bareksten calls itself ‘the bottled essence of Norwegian nature’.

In the dense forests, only the strongest botanicals survive. The distillers have sourced the finest Norwegian botanicals including organic herbs and berries to create a spirit with an earthy, wild quality. The clean flavors are slightly savory, balanced out by the sweetness of the berries. Dark, rich and magical; this is the spirit of Norway, bottled.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
