HOW IT ALL STARTED

FROM A ROYAL DISTILLERY TO A FAMILY BUSINESS

In 1852, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte enacted a new constitution in France, Britain’s Westminster palace was brand new and a young Russian named Leo Tolstoi published his first novel. For our family, 1852 is of particular importance because it is the year our great-great-great-grandfather Gustav Ranin started the family business by purchasing the Crown Distillery, founded in 1783 in the city of Kuopio, Finland. Gustav Ranin’s legacy lives strong on in our family. Ever since the day he took on the king’s distillery, from generation to generation, from father to son, we have learned through experience and increased our knowledge with the goal of creating the finest liqueurs and vodkas from Mother Nature’s arctic splendour.

MOST AUTHENTIC TASTES OF ARCTIC

KEEPING OUR PROMISE WITH EACH GENERATION

Much advancement has been made over the course of centuries, and each generation has left its mark and added to our knowledge. But there is one thing that has never changed: our family’s promise to offer most authentic tastes of arctic. For us, this means a deep respect for the arctic wilderness, an artisan approach to its pure botanicals and a continuous effort to achieve better and better results; flavours that highlight the four distinct seasons of the Northern Hemisphere.

FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION

The passing on of traditions from generation to generation has long been the key to our success. Arctic weather conditions add their own challenges that necessitate a dash of innovation and humility – and perhaps a stubborn refusal to give up. Every generation has headed into the future with knowledge passed on by those before them. The years have removed the unnecessary from the process towards our goal: Tastes which caress your palate and feeling to embrace all senses – across the full range of our 100% raw Arctic botanical spirits.
