Svensk Absint

Svensk Absint AB is a small farm distillery in Glanshammar just outside Örebro. Mikael Norell works as a chemical engineer and has had absinthe as one of his special interests since 2003. Tomas Runnquist is a multi-tasking entrepreneur with a background in the energy industry. In addition to his work as an industrial technician, he also works with rural development. We produce various fine distillates such as Kilsbergen Gin, Aquavit Colonel Brännvin, the internationally renowned absinthes Green Opal and White Opal. Absint, our flagship, is in the style of the real and traditionally much appreciated French absinthe. It has a great character and a wide range of aromatic herbs.

Wild Swedish Vermouth, which we hand-pick ourselves in small batches, is the main protagonist of the drink. Its fresh, floral tones rest on a balanced base of aniseed and Florentine fennel, along with other herbs that bring both beautiful color and complexity. Our focus is on small batches of high quality; an artisan craft in all phases from the herb harvest to bottling and labelling. Driven by a burning interest in this mythical beverage, we started the company in 2009 as a sideline with the goal of establishing a small-scale production distillery of authentic, premium absinthe, based primarily on the finest quality Swedish raw materials. However, getting there would take longer than we initially expected. It took 2011 before we finally found a suitable venue for the distillery. While we were looking for a room, Mikael took the opportunity to set up his own land where he organically grows several herbs such as isop, lemon balm and roman wormwood for beverage making. In the spring of 2012 we received our permit to distill alcohol and on a sunny day in May our still arrived. However, it would still be a few months before our premises were rebuilt, tested and approved for distillery operations. Building permits, fire safety documentation, door reinforcement, assessment plans, self-regulation programs - a selection of the many fun things that needed to be prepared. But then, on a beautiful winter's day, everything was finally ready, and when we tasted the first long-awaited drops that came out of our facility, we felt that they were definitely worth the wait!
