Homemade schnapps - or bought?
Snaps has a very broad understanding. It is in its simplicity a spirit. Spiced spirits with whatever the producer finds exciting. There are both mass-produced versions and more homemade ones from local households, where flavours are added as desired to flavourless spirits. This could be vodka, for example. This ancient spirit has a long history in the Nordic countries. In the old days, potatoes were often used as the main ingredient in distillation. Also cereals, which are probably more used nowadays. So if you want to jump on the bandwagon, try some innovative flavours, Bornholm Spirits will be the right choice.
