He drinks: Anyway, Fjording, with its hazelnut and caramel liqueur, won a double gold medal for the second time in the world’s largest and most respected liquor competition; San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
And Fjord Norway wrote in a press release that it is in a beverage category that Norway has had no participants in before.
Fjording also developed Norway’s first-ever coffee alcoholic drink – this also crowned with a gold medal at Statane. The product is called Tår coffee liqueur, and in the next production, the drink will most likely be produced at Gardsbrenniet.
Our collaboration at Fjording has been so constructive that we hope we can go for something similar on a coffee drink, says Øyvind Løkling, daily camper at Fjording’s small business. – We will probably change a bit in the recipe and production process before the new launch, but of course the goal is to make the best coffee liqueurs in the world too. We have all the prerequisites at Nordfjord to make this happen. Kahlua and Tia Maria have every reason to be afraid of us, says Løkling with a smile.
The collaboration between Fjording and Gardsbrenniet came in 2017 when Løkling met Gardsbrenniet’s daily leader, Jann Vestby, to talk about developing a Norwegian competitor for the Irish Baileys.
Today, Fjording Hazelnut Caramel is available in at least half of Vinmonopola across the country and has become a favorite with people who value taste and quality, local creativity, or have a warm heart for strait horses. Fjording donates $1 for every bottle they sell of the liqueur for good Fjord horse stuff. For sale in 2021 until gift bowl 135,000 kr.
We do things our way and we care about the things we care about, and then the big global brands get their products. In the blind test, we always win the tasting experience, which is the most important thing. And then it may be a bonus that we care about the welfare of the strait horse for most hardcore fans.” Løkling ends.
