VIDDA gin is a Norwegian take on a traditional gin profile, using homegrown botanicals to bring that piny, forest fresh feel. The gin is the proud product of Oslo Håndverksdestilleri (OHD), a distillery founded in 2015 by Marius Vestnes and Marcin Miller, with Martin Krajewski as a partner. The idea to make a gin came to OHD when Marius Vestnes invited the entire team to his mountain cabin. They set off on a mountain trek on a bright, brisk day in April 2014, in which they picked, smelled and tasted their way through miles and miles of flora.
The taste of the gin isn’t as sweet as the nose suggests, though there is an immediate hit of sweeter florals to begin (followed swiftly by heat). Pine is there throughout, though louder towards the back and is the lasting taste of the entire sip, staying in the mouth long after. It’s fresh and clean, rounding the gin off nicely.
