“Interesting tour of the distillery where we were told and shown how production takes place and some history about ÅRØYBUKT . Impressive! Then tasting of different whiskys. Here we learned whole new things about whisky, both about the products and how to learn to recognize flavors . Nice and good staff and good service. Recommended!”

Jim Are Hansen

“Amazing place, such a great job & both the architecture and design is stunning. We were lucky enough to have a grand tour of both the distillery and the cold war bunker and they are a must for people visiting Lyngen. Unique and special, just like the landscape. Cant wait to sample the whisky, when its finished!”
