The Braunstein Collection

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 8.39.31 AMA while ago I received a lovely box with 5 tubes filled with lovely spirits. Rum, Vodka, Gin, Danica Whisky, Danica Whisky Peat.

Like the text says in the beautiful small box; in your hand you have the unique opportunity to explore the inciting universe of this golden liquid.

With this box came a leaflet with more information about the Danish Whisky. Information about two brothers ‘Claus and Michael Braunstein’, their passion for fly-fishing and how the idea to develop and manufacture  a Danish whisky occurred. Reading all this, fabulous.

Oh my, what an experience! Wauw! I’m known for doing things that are completely out of the box. I mixed the leftovers, as well from the whisky as the gin, vodka and rum. And the taste? Weird, very weird. But it’s something you have to experience yourself when you have the chance. Personally? I won’t do that again …… soon!
