Time flies when you’re having fun! Can you believe we are already fast approaching December and Christmas is just around the corner!
November is usually a quieter month for many before the festive season kicks in; we have been busy showcasing Sav, a sparkling wine from Sweden that is made without grapes at the Wine & Spirit Fair and of course, preparing delicious Nordic Christmas surprises for everyone!
Have you started gathering ideas for Christmas or rather a last minute Christmas present shopper? Let us give you some inspirations in the next coming weeks and you can always come to us for completing your shopping with some magical Nordic touch!
Product of the Month – Sav
We are pleased to have created a delectable Scandinavian sensation, by launching Sav Birch Sap sparkling wines and spirits in Hong Kong at this year’s Wine & Spirit Fair.
The fair attendees were pleasantly surprised with a sparkling wine produced in Sweden and made without grapes, of which has an elegant metallic and wooden flavour, yet leaving a refreshing and comforting aftertaste.
The Snaps and Glöd also received much praises for their pure and freshness in taste. The Glöd was especially popular with the locals, with its delicate blend of birch sap wine and spices such as ginger, cinnamon, citrus peel and angelica. It is particularly appealing in the current cooler weather and great to be enjoyed during the upcoming festive season.
The unique Sav sparkling wine and spirit is made from birch tree sap grown around Lake Storsjön in Jämtland in Northern Sweden. The sap is extracted from the trees for three weeks in the beginning of Spring before the buds begin to bloom.
The birch sap collected is quality checked, filtered and fermented in steel tanks for a few weeks, before being refined and bottled. The bottled sap is then lied on the lees for the second fermentation in the bottles for over a year to allow for the bubbles to occur naturally and a perfect balance of flavour.
The Sav Sparkling Wine, Sav Sparkling 2012, Sav Snaps and Sav Glöd are now available to be ordered. Please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
