Aurora Spirit has established a unique distillery that attracts international attention with its spectacular location. The Lyngen alps, the fjord, the northern lights and the arctic wilderness provide an excellent setting for making whisky and other alcohol products under the brand name Bivrost. The products are based on local herbs, berries and melted glacier water.
Our opening hours for visitors are from 11 – 15, MO-FR (Winter season, 01.dec-30.apr) and 12 – 16, MO – FR (Summer season, 01. may-30.nov). (For special requests and groups we can offer other options).
Our most popular experience is the “Arctic Distillation Experience“, which is normally conducted at 13.00 and 14.00 (MO – FR).
