The apple component in Åhus Midvinter is a distillate made from Swedish apples. We source it from a tiny craft distillery called Norrtelje Brenneri, that specializes in apple distillates of all types. The species vary, but the distillate comes predominantly from Aroma and Ingrid-Marie, both well-known in Sweden.
Besides Ingrid-Marie and Aroma, the distillate is made also from apples without any commercial name. Norrtelje Brenneri buys assorted apples from a local man who has been working at nurseries and bred some of the apple trees experimentally, producing ongoing diverse fruits that change with each harvest.
