Bivrost Aquavit

Made with Glacier Melt Water

Our water source is filtered, glacial water from the Lyngen Alps. This is water that was frozen more than 5,000 years ago forming large glaciers high in the alps. Over the last 100 years these glaciers have gradually begun to melt, providing the main ingredient in Bivrost alcoholic beverages.
