Snaps tasting

Learn the story about snaps from Snaps Bornholm - one of Denmarks leading brands of snaps.

Snaps Bornholm strive to rethink the concept of snaps, while maintaining proud traditions. We celebrate the diversity of beautiful Nordic ingredients through quality spirits that are a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.

We start from the positive and love to stimulate and inspire other people.

Snaps and other spirits are produced with love, curiosity and dedication on
the basis of good raw materials and super-soft, crystal-clear Bornholm water, which has aged on mineral-rich rocky ground for billions of years, which helps to give the spirit an even more balanced taste.

Making sandwiches

SMØRREBRØD (means bread with butter really) was actually invented by working people who had to eat their lunch away from their home. They would use leftovers from last night's dinner, and pile it on top of their rye bread so that they could keep the hunger away until dinnertime.

Pålæg (lay-on) is what you put on top. Smørrebrød is almost always made with sourdough rye bread - we love rye bread in Denmark - and meat, fish, cheese, or seafood as toppings and today also vegan options with vegetables.

So is smørrebrød easy to make? Yes and no really. Some of the sandwiches are so easy, and you can make them with everything you have at home, whilst others are actually layered with so much amazing stuff that it would require a bit of effort to replicate them. One general rule is to add a generous layer of butter (not margarine) and then start adding on top.

When Danes celebrate Easter and Christmas we often have 'luncheons' where everyone brings homemade dishes, and we then pile meats, fish, and seafood on top of rye bread. There is also a sequence of how you eat Smørrebrød: You would always start with your cold fish dishes, moving on to your warm meat dishes, and finishing with fruit salad (mainly for kids) and a vast cheeseboard. This is not fast but slow food, and we often linger over lunch for a long long time.

Look forward to making and tasting your own smørrebrød at Sigurds Class.
