With an interest for Whisky and inspired by a vacation spent sailing around Scotland, the five entrepreneurs decided to start their own Whisky adventure. The company was founded in 2018 and they now produce whisky, gin and aquavit in their own distillery at Ekrene in Sveio. They want to add taste from local ingredients and you can taste local forest fruits and Norway Spruce shoots in the gin. The latest project is whisky made with malt smoked with local peat.

On a guided tour including tasting, you can follow the Whisky’s journey from spring water to maturation on barrales and the final selection before bottling. You will also learn about the story behind the distillery and the inspiration they have gotten from the local history going back thousands of years in time. At the end of the tour you will be served four tastings. What you get depends on your preferences and sometimes include tastings from testing the maturation on selected barrels.

Join one of the founders for an exciting tour at the distillery. Price: 250 NOK for tour, and an additional 140 NOK if you would like to include tasting of products. The tour usually takes about 1-1,5 hours. Contact for booking.
