More information about NORDCRAFT Dry Botanical Spirit Beet & Berry
For us, Hanseatic distilling craftsmanship from the 21st century means overcoming category thinking and creating something new. With the Dry Botanical Spirit product range, we create spirits with a strong character based on the Nordic diversity of herbs, fruits and plants. Produced by the Nordcraft Distillery in Hamburg-Altona.
This distillate is defined by a contrasting interplay of earthy tones of beet on the one hand and fruity light aromas of raspberry on the other.
Craft & Creativity
Our NORDCRAFT manufactory is located in the middle of Altona. Here we have found the perfect place to produce finest spirits in small batches, completely in the tradition of a botanical distiller.
With our many years of experience in the spirits business, we can combine craftsmanship and the joy of experimentation here in the way we envision: as a "lab" for unconventional spirits with a strong regional flavor.
Only selected ingredients from the Hamburg region and from Hamburg traders go into the bottles - this makes NORDCRAFT products true Hanseatics.
The first spirit of our NORDCRAFT distillery is a clear herbal distillate - in short: Dry Botanical Spirit. We wanted to create something that is complex in aroma and mixable like a gin, but distilled from fresh herbs such as cucumber, parsley and dill has a very unique, Nordic note.
We have created a new type of spirit that can be enjoyed neat or as a long drink with tonic, but will also make a splash in the bar scene with new, delicious drinks.
We want to create finely tuned spirits with character.
This requires the highest craftsmanship, the best raw materials and a flair for that certain something. We distill all botanicals 100% ourselves. We use mainly regional products with short distances from the Hamburg area, which meet the highest quality standards. For example, we have a reliable partner and supplier for our ingredients in the Demeter nursery Sannmann from Vierlanden.
NORDCRAFT products are lovingly handmade directly on site, in the distillery. The distiller supervises every step - whether preparation and maceration of ingredients or filling and labeling of the bottles. We are a true manufactory operation on less than 200 m². Every move counts, every move is right!
NORDCRAFT: real craftsmanship - small plants
Mario Gallone has put together his distillation plants with 20-150l stills with an eye for detail and in loving detail work in order to be able to implement his philosophy of distilling perfectly. For this purpose, some of the plants were specially rebuilt and refined according to his specifications, and additional features were added. Thus, all pot still plants bear a name, such as Kopper Carl and Kopper Michel, because they also belong to the NORDCRAFT family.
