Our History

The company is based in San Diego, California and was founded in March 2020 after building a close relationship with Sav™, a wine and spirits producer in Åre, Sweden. Their unique products, both wine and spirits, are made from the sap of the birch tree. 

Viking Spirits is focused on the northern region of Scandinavia, which has a long history of producing world class spirits. With climate change, the grape wine region of southern Sweden is growing in size from year to year. Our goal is to continue to build close relationships with both new and existing producers and make Scandinavian wine and spirits common household names in the USA.

Current Offerings

Savhuset Åre

Sav™ Sparkling, as the name suggests (the Swedish word sav means sap in english), is a sparkling wine produced from crystal clear birch sap that is harvested in Sweden’s cooler climate from untouched natural birch tree forests in the region of Jamtland.

For centuries, birch sap has been used in the arctic regions as an important part of nutrition during spring and late winter months.

Sav™ Glod, is a birch sap wine blended with natural flavors and spices like ginger, citrus, angelica, sugar and Sav™Snaps. Enjoyed warm in front of the fireplace or as a cold aperitif before dinner.

Sav™ Snaps  is a development of Sav™Sparkling, the sparkling birch wine. After a recipe excavated in archives from the 18th century, eco-engineer Peter Mosten harvests the birch sap from specially selected birches at Lake Storsjön. A procedure created by Peter involves analyzing the vegetation around the birch trees to make sure that the sap contains the right minerals and substances.

Tevsjö Mill & Distillery

Ragnarök Gin is small batch distilled in a copper pot still using a base spirit made from Swedish winter barley, harvested from the fields surrounding the distillery in Northern Sweden. The aim was to produce a gin that encapsulates the Swedish wilderness, the inspiration of Ragnarök gin. To achieve this, Ragnarök uses 8 botanicals, the prominent four being juniper berries, fresh lingonberries, caraway seeds and dill leaves. In the background, but no less important, are four further citrus and spice botanicals that serve to produce an elegantly balanced gin.

The distillate is blended with pure mountain spring water to bring it down to 88 proof (44%Alc/Vol.), a strength that holds the botanicals in perfect balance, allowing Ragnarök to be served perfectly on its own and make a fantastic martini, whilst also making sure it stands up for itself in G&Ts and cocktails.

Each bottle of Ragnarök is individually filled, sealed and numbered by hand.

With La Luna Absinthe, Plateau Spirits have made their very own version of an absinthe, of which the botanicals get help from other fresh flavors such as papaya, coconut, coffee beans and angelica – all this is allowed to “pull” for a whole week on fresh lemon balm / heart delight.  This absinthe is a real delight for the palate and you immediately forget the high alcohol percentage of 61%

Absinthe has historically been described as a distilled beverage with very high alcohol strength. This anise-inspired spirit comes from flavorings such as flowers, leaves from garden wormwood, anise, fennel and other aromatic herbs. Absinthe natural green color is often described as “The Green Fairy” in historical books.

Järvsö Aquavit Royal is a traditional caraway flavored Aquavit with anise, fennel and sweet Spanish cherry.  

In Scandinavia, snaps is a word used for infused sprits, where raw alcohol is infused with a flavor.  Aquavit is a snaps which has been flavored with a distillate of dill seed and/or caraway.

Aquavit remains a significant part of Scandinavian culture and is commonly an integral part of special events such as Christmas, birthdays and weddings.  Aquavit is great served chilled in a shot glass but it can be also substituted as the base for many gin and whiskey classics to add a new dimension to your favorite cocktails.  

Gin Havtorn is a classically spiced smooth London Dry gin from Sweden with notes of fruitiness from the sea buckthorn berries grown locally in Järvsö.  The perfect go-to gin for any occasion.  

Black Chai Bergamot is based on Tevsjö’s own oat Vodka, made solely using oats produced by farmers from the Swedish province of Hälsingland. Tevsjö have carefully redistilled the vodka using their own secret tea blends, both with tea directly in the vodka and using a herb infuser for steam distillation. This brings out the aromatic substances in the tea, while at the same time preserving its freshness without too much bitterness.  The vodka is then carefully redistilled, in this case using proper tea. All the water comes from Tevsjö’s own natural spring, situated approximately 1 km from the distillery. The grain is always local. Black Chai Bergamot is bottled and labeled with love at the distillery.

Black Chai Bergamot is ideal as an aperitif or as part of a cocktail.
