Nordic gin comes to UK

A Nordic gin with ties to Edinburgh has been launched in the UK.

• The design reflects Vidda’s roots.
• The design reflects Vidda’s roots.

Vidda is produced by Norwegian craft distillery Oslo Håndverksdestilleri (OHD) and is described as an interpretation of a traditional British dry gin.
The spirit has been designed to represent the Norwegian wilderness, with botanicals that include meadowsweet and heather.
It was created by OHD head distiller Dave Gardonio, a graduate of Edinburgh’s Heriot Watt University.
Gardonio said: “Nature is our inspiration.
“The conditions of the seasons in Norway means we experience short, intense growing periods that greatly impact the flavour of the wild herbs and spices that grow around us.
“We use these naturalised botanicals to create the distinct aroma and taste of Vidda.”
