Spirit of Hven is a family-owned craft distillery situated on the beautiful island Hven in the strait of Öresund between Sweden and Denmark.This unique distillery uses both column stills and pot stills, to create its own spirits from only the best organic grains. Before each spirit is made the ingredients are carefully selected and analyzed by the distillery’s own laboratory to ensure the highest quality.The final spirits are bottled and hand-waxed without any carbon- or chill-filtering, no color corrections, or additives.
Spirit of Hven distills its Coffey Coffee Vodka with a Continuous Coffey Still and then infused with coffee. The beans are a combination of light and medium roasted, arabica coffee grown in Ethiopia and Jamaica, and robusta beans from Brazil. During the second distillation, fresh beans are placed in the botanical basket and the vapors extract more flavor.
The Coffey still allows for continuous distillation that is faster and requires less energy for the same output compared to a traditional pot still. Coffey stills tend to produce a lighter spirit than pot stills leading most distillers to age the distillate to impart greater character.
