Det Norske Brenneri
Formerly Puntervold/Agder Brenneri, Det Norske Brenneri has its production and barrel warehouse in Grimstad, Sørlandet. Among other things, various aquavit brands and apple spirits have been produced there since the production monopoly in Norway was dissolved in 2005. They were the first private distillery in Norway after more than 80 years of monopoly. Grimstad has a history dating back to the 1880s when it comes to the production of liqueur wines, through the Fuhr brand.
Passionate about OLD CRAFTS
They use only the best herbs and spices in their aquavits, many of which come from Norwegian nature. Due to the climate, there are few places on the planet where herbs and berries have such a taste and aroma as in Norway. Det Norske Brenneri collaborates with botanist Rolv Hjelmstad in Urtekilden in Oppdal and organic herbs from Røros. They place great emphasis on barrel storage and use only the best Oloroso sherry barrels from Spain. Many of their aquavits have received Norwegian and international awards for their quality.
Today, Det Norske Brenneri is best known for its craft products; the aquavits Arvesølvet, Arvesølvet Helt Klar, Høvding and Hellstrøm. In 2012, they launched Norway's first single malt whiskey, called Audny. The sequel, Eiktyrne, came in November 2015. That year they also launched a new Norwegian gin - based on Norwegian berries and herbs. Harahorn - Norwegian small batch gin - is a real craft gin.
