Gin inspired by a rabbit with horns? Sure, we’re in Norway, baby!

Det Norske Brenneri, or "The Norwegian Distillery" in English, is based in the lovely town of Grimstad in the southern part of the country (it’s where Roald Dahl’s grandparents lived). They’re the first private distillery in Norway ever since the government dissolved the state monopoly on Spirits-making in 2005, and they’ve been making everything from apple Brandies and Whiskeys to Aquavits and Gins. They swear on traditional methods and small batches — they only produce 300 liters at a time. Naturally, DNB only uses local Norwegian berries and herbs, which have a very unique and specific taste thanks to the environment and the climate.

Now about the cool name and that horned hare. Harahorn Gin is named after a mountain in Hemsedal, one of the most pristine mountain areas. The chimeric beast on the label is the lepus cornutus, a huge rabbit with deer antlers, thought to be real in the 16th and 17th centuries. Thank goodness we’re not that silly today, eh? The Gin itself uses the Norwegian potato liquor as the base and contains Røros juniper, anise, Nordmarka blueberries, Grimstad rhubarb, Oppdal angelica, seaweed, wild Sunndal marjoram, and 16 other Norse herbs. Some say it’s one of the best Gins on the planet, but what’s certain is they got the 2019 USA Spirits Ratings award for the Gin of the Year

What does Harahorn Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Harahorn Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

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.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe, and sold via distributors to the Gin makers of the world.

Duncan,
Sharp and clean with a nice touch of rhubarb. Excellent in a gimlet or dry martini.
