More information about Blomendahl "Old Swede"
An amazingly complex and elegant herbal liqueur with a long history.
"Old Swede" is a mild herbal liqueur specialty whose history goes back to the Thirty Years War between Catholics and Protestants from 1618 to 1648. The recipe is very elaborate. We use 200 different herbs and spices for its production. The result is a very smooth, mild and drinkable liqueur, with no bitter taste and very little sweetness.
It is incredibly versatile and can be used in many cocktails but also drunk neat or on ice. Alter Schwede is produced in our distilleries in South Africa and Germany and has been awarded the Michelangelo Gold Medal in 2019.
