INTRODUCING: MIKKELLER SPIRITS


It’s about beer, it’s about spirits and it’s about bringing the two worlds together with great respect for both.

It’s no secret that Mikkeller (the brewery) is inspired by the beers and breweries from the US. They do a lot of beers with powerful American hops. They do a lot of other stuff as well, They do all styles of beer because we like to explore genres and they like to take genres somewhere else. Mikkeller Spirits is not just taking genres somewhere else, this is beer meeting spirits. The concept is known as micro distilling. Mikkeller did not invent this; it has been going on for some time. Micro distilling is really blooming in the US, as mentioned, they are aware of stuff happening over there.

Mikkeller are curious by nature; distilling is not the only issue here.
The real issue for Mikkeller and Mikkeller Spirits is the coherence between the two things. That’s what we found to be key for releasing spirits, coherence!

Based on the finest tall blonde wheat, then distilled five times and blended with Citra hops. 

This Vodka is the new true super premium vodka with an unparalleled smooth feeling and a lovely fresh taste of hops. 44% alc. (88 proof) – yet exceptionally smooth & delicious!

Superb for a straight up shot – with or without ice – or for any vodka based drink or cocktail.



The new-make spirit is as very fruity clean spirit, where the hoppiness and the chrisp taste of dark malts are what meets your mouth, but it is still a rough spirit – therefore we decided to barrel age it!

European oak has always been the finest casks for maturing whisky, especially sherry cask – and this for a good reason – TASTE!

There casks gives the black spirit another level where taste of dark chocolate and taste of dark fruits and nuts come in play – A JOY for the whisky drinker.



Distilled of the finest botanicals. Carefully balanced with a full scent of Juniper berries making way for lemon grass and soft tones of angelica root. A little touch of cardamom, ending off with slightly bittersweet tones of oranges. Note the hoppy feeling you get, the US Simcoe hops add a lemon zesty touch.

Drink it straight if you are man enough – don’t worry, it´s smooth as silk – or make the perfect G & T with crushed ice, the best Tonic water you can find, Mikkeller Gin and a slice of orange.
