Apple Glow Tonic

by | Sep 23, 2020

 

Today Skånska Spritfabriken launch their new apple distillate ”Äppelglöd” in Sweden. It’s a lovely low ABV apple spirit, made with Swedish apples and with no added sugar whatsoever. It can be enjoyed ice cold as an aperitif, or it can be mixed ”tonic-style” like we did.

The apple tonic water we’re using here is pretty awesome. It has the expected tonic qualities, but it’s backed up with this vibrant apple tone in the background that works perfectly together with the Äppelglöd. And thinking of it, mixing this apple tonic water with a floral gin will probably also be a great idea.
