On the island of Hven located in the strait of Öresund between Denmark and Sweden lies Spirit of Hven – a distillery as well as a four star Conference and Hotel resort with Restaurant and Pub. Spirit of Hven Backafallsbyn is situated on an island rich in agricultural heritage. The surrounding region is home to some of Sweden’s absolute best producers of agricultural products, which explains why we at Spirit of Hven emphasise use of local raw materials. Spirit of Hven distillery is world unique, one of the worlds smallest commercial pot still distillery, where everything from mashing to fermentation, distilling, maturation and bottling are carried out at site. A small format gives great benefits when wanting to extract maximum scent and taste, a small size gives larger surface area per volume for the chemical reactions to take place and giving the wanted character. In the Spirit of Hven distillery everything is designed to the last bolt for creating the unique character that will go in to one of the world’s best spirits. Spirit of Hven works with long fermentation and a variety of yeast strains to get the right flavour and scent in the final spirit. The three stills with their shell and tub condensers are designed to give the right surface area of copper and the right reflux resulting in a magic combination of scent and taste.
