Honningsyp is a traditional Bornholm drink made from schnapps and honey. Perhaps the honey was originally added to hide the taste of a bad spirit, but in this version from Den Bornholmske Spritfabrik the key word is quality! It is bottled at 32% alcohol and can be enjoyed whenever you feel the urge for a little sip of Bornholm's history.
Colour: Fine light yellow.
Scent: Delicious, inviting scent of honey.
Flavour: Soft and round with great sweetness and a mild aftertaste.
Serving suggestions: Can be enjoyed neat or in cocktails.
The old steam distillery in Hasle, built in 1855, had a reputation for producing spirits of the highest quality. However, it was closed down shortly after the First World War, and Bornholm was (officially) distillation-free for the next seventy years, with Bornholmer Akvavit being produced everywhere else but Bornholm. But in 1994, Den Bornholmske Spritfabrik finally revived the noble tradition of Bornholm brandy! The production is characterized by craftsmanship and good raw materials.
