The Viking god Njord has given name to the distillery and their gins handcrafted from botanicals, grain, potatoes, patience and curiosity. In a small copper still, it all boils down to a deep and complex flavor. Every drop has a high quality. Each batch has its own personality. As written on the label; ‘Enjoy the mystery. Enjoy with care. It’s your nature. Distilled’.
Besides being the perfect name for a gin from a brand named after a Viking god, then ‘Mild Wildness’ is also referring to the very delicate and mild expression of the gin, regardless of the use of wildness in the form of the uncontrollable rosehip and the untamable stinging nettle. Lemon peel and lavender are adding a light citrusy and floral top layer on the deep notes from juniper, orris root and cinnamon bark.
The mild expression is complemented by a crisp wheat distillate which is added besides water after the gin distillation. This multi-shot method results in this very delicate and mild gin, that is perfect for this pleasing and refreshing Gin Rose cocktail.
