Bivrost Whisky

the Worlds Northernmost

WORLDS NORTHERNMOST WHISKY

Bivrost® Whisky is handcrafted under the glow of the Northern Lights, at the foot of the majestic Lyngen Alps in Arctic Norway. Melting water from glaciers is purified and combined with local wash from arctic barley to ensure a unique product of Arctic Norway.

What is the Arctic?

The Arctic is a polar region located at the northernmost part of Earth. Land within the Arctic region has seasonally varying snow and ice cover and the Arctic seas contain seasonal sea ice in many places. The Arctic region is a unique area among Earth’s ecosystems. The botanicals, animals and indigenous peoples of the Arctic have adapted to its cold and extreme conditions.

The Arctic Circle

The Arctic Circle is the most northerly of the abstract five major circles of latitude as shown on maps of the Earth. It marks the northernmost point at which the noon sun is just visible on the northern winter solstice and the southernmost point at which the Midnight Sun is just visible on the northern summer solstice. The region north of this circle is known as the Arctic.

Storage

We store our Whisky casks in a Viking Longhouse, a few metres from the Arctic sea. The whole area around the distillery was an old coastal fort, built by the occupying German forces during the Second World War. The temperature and the humidity in our storage facilities are excellent. We get decent temperature variation throughout the year.

Casks

Maturing Whisky in casks is a science of its own. Owing to the Arctic temperature, we use relatively small casks for faster maturation. We store our Whisky in a lot of different cask types (Sherry, Bourbon, Sauterne, Madeira, Viring oak and more). As we are producing the Norwegian aquavit, we also have the option of using Aquavit casks for maturation.

Arctic barley

We started using Arctic barley as part of a development project in 2019. We are working together with different farmers who are growing the Worlds northernmost barley.

Arctic barley

The barley we are using is 6 rows “Heder” and “Brage”. These variations can withstand the harsh and cold climate up in the Arctic. Especially the strength of the straw is important.

Arctic barley

The yield of the arctic crop is very low. Actually less than half of “normal barley” produced further south. However, the taste of the New Make is really different than any other new make. The final Whisky will be a very different one.
