As with so many countries in Europe, Swedish exploration led directly to the development of drinking traditions. Trade in caraway and star anise led to aquavit, the classic Scandinavian botanical spirit. Ships of the Swedish East India Company found Batavia-Arrack, funky dark sugar, tea and spices in and around Java, concocted a ‘Punsch’ with them for the long sail back to Gothenborg, then introduced the new drink in Sweden. The tradition took hold, and eventually made its way to America and the classic cocktails of the early 1900s.

      26.0% Alc/Vol

      Swedish Punsch is a liqueur of two histories—a national drink in Sweden, and a component of more than fifty classic cocktails. Made with rums from the West Indies (Demerara and Jamaica) and East Indies (Batavia Arrack) and numerous spice and bitter flavors, Kronan has exceptional depth and complexity, particularly with a bit of citrus added. Use in the Doctor Cocktail, Diki-Diki, and Mabel Berra cocktails. With ice and a squeeze of lime, Kronan is an ideal and easy afternoon drink, after dinner, or with cigars. Full details
