Gustav Arctic Cranberry Liqueur
The story behind Lignell & Piispanen (the creators of the Gustav range of spirits) goes back to 1852. A family run business from then until today, it was started by Gustav Ranin when he purchases the Crown Distillery (itself founded in 1783) situated in the city of Kuopio (around 400km north-east of Helsinki) in Finland.
Right from their beginnings, the company has taken inspiration from the pristine forests and marshlands of their region. They handpick the berries and plants from this region, which are the pure raw materials within Gustav Spirits.
Their 170+ year history, attention to detail, and flavours found in their pristine landscape come together to create their delicious Gustav Spirits.
The use of of Arctic cranberries is both a steadfast principle and a precious privilege for Gustav. The carefully handpicked cranberries from the Arctic forest near them, remind them of an ecological and ethical way of thinking and doing.
Due to their qualities, wild arctic cranberries make for an excellent raw material for liqueurs. Gustav extract the berries natural sweet and slightly tart flavours using the same methods as their predecessors in the 19th century. This liqueur has a strong personality containing aromas of apple blossom and red berries. Sustainable harvest, handcrated small batch, natural extract.
