We make our gins in a magnificent German copper still. After a long fermentation and distillation period, the alcohol base spends time together with loads of junipers. Then we boil the mass again together with our carefully selected botanicals.
Drop by drop, the spirit travels through the still. Hours after hours, we taste the result during the process (yes, it's a tough job..) and make cuts to portion it in "head", "heart" and "tail". The heart is when the taste and nose are at their cleanest and most elegant point, and this is what we use in the next steps of the process. We blend it with spring water until reaching the right alcohol volume.
Each batch has around 300 bottles. Njord is handcrafted, hand-bottled, hand-labeled, and each batch and bottle is numbered.
