Throughout Europe, exploration and trade led directly to development of drinking traditions. In Scandinavia, trade in caraway, cardamom, cumin, fennel and star anise—as well as lemon and orange—led to aquavit, the classic Scandinavian botanical spirit. Ships of the Swedish East India Company discovered Batavia-Arrack, dark sugar, tea and spices in their trade in the “Dutch East Indies” and created a “Punsch” to endure the long journey back to Swedish ports like Göteborg. The tradition of Swedish Punsch took hold there, and subsequently was carried to America, where it became a signature in classic cocktails of the early 1900s.

      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
