Solveig \SOUL-vai\ is a uniquely lush and verdant New American Style gin distilled with 8 botanicals including red grapefruit, organic thyme and lavender.
TASTING NOTES | Offering a nose of citrus, pine cones and a hint of lavender, Solveig combines a creamy entry with an almost ethereal lightness on the palate. Complex and concentrated in the glass after twenty-four hours of air, the gin shows exceptional balance in the mid-palate, with added flavors of thyme and coriander. The finish is rich, persistent, and almost cool, with lingering notes of black olives and fresh grain.
89 POINTS - Wine Enthusiast
The Scandinavian woman’s name Solveig (the “g” is silent) has deep Nordic roots, combining the elements “sol” sun and “veig” strength. We love both the history and the sound of Solveig – soulful, strong and bright. Just like our gin.
Solveig was our first love and first release, and the flavor is inspired by how lush and green the prairie smells after it rains in early June. It’s soft, ethereal, and lightly floral with citrus notes that dominate the juniper ~ a gin for people who don’t think they like gin.
