| In collaboration with VilliVesi |
Everytime we stop and think about all the goods that can be foraged from a Nordic forest we are amazed. If you think about it, these forests are frozen for most part of the year. The weather is really hard and merciless. Still, every spring, as soon as the snow starts to melt, the forest is reborn and the vegetation comes to life once again.
Maybe because of this reason the flavors connected with a Nordic forest are so pure, pristine and intense. As you know, we have a real passion when it comes to preparing delicacies with wild food and trying to bottle up all the amazing smells and flavors of the forest (like with our Spruce Tip Herbal Liqueur or The Lingonberry Forest Liqueur). That is why when we discovered VilliVesi we were so glad to collaborate with them.
The values of Villi Vesi immediately resonated with us as they only use natural ingredients, 100% recycled plastic for their bottles, sustainable energy and have zero carbon footprint on the planet! 🙌🏼♻️🌍🌱 What more to ask?
Besides all this, their flavored waters taste so amazing, that really they taste like ready mocktails as they are! Despite being so good on their own, we still developed some great cocktails and mocktails using their Blueberry & Spruce Tip, Juniper & Lemon and Apple & Ginger flavored carbonated waters. We really hope you’ll like these recipes and try to recreate them at home, we really put our hearts in these and can guarantee you we absolutely love the result!
