Bareksten Gin is nothing shy of a foraging-fest, with 26 botanicals vying for your attention, 19 of which were plucked near the distillery in Bergen, Norway. It’s a real wade through a Norwegian forest, with lashing of pine and soft berries.

With fresh pine, budding spruce tips, bursting fruit and delicate petals lighting up the tongue, Bareksten needs little assistance with flavour. It’s really one that deserves to be tasted neat, although G&T fans love garnishing it with blueberries.

Key Flavours

"Leaning on all of the knowledge of harnessing botanicals acquired through generations of Aquavit makers, this Scandinavian gin showcases an inherent understanding of building depth and intrigue through dozens of local herbs."

About this product

A creamy base alcohol is made on site from potatoes, but then Bareksten follows a traditional method, with harder botanicals left to steep for 24-hours, and softer ones – like citrus, rhubarb and flowers – distilled fresh in the vapour basket.

Founder Stig Bareksten is a fussy man, so much so that he has a GPS device telling him exactly where his botanicals grow in the Bergen forest. He’s had a lot of experience creating gin before too, but this was the first and only that got his name.

OSS Craft Distillery is based in the heart of the Norwegian countryside, and the Bareksten range is its only output. Talking of which, fans of the forest flavours would do well to check out the Navy Strength and Old Tom.

"A higher proof version of the original, use this expression over the Bareksten Dry if you prefer making Negroni's or Gimlets compared to G&T's, as the bold flavour impact carries through strong mixers."
