A subtly sweet non-alcoholic aperitif for the open minded pink gin drinker.
As unique as the land that inspired it, ‘Midnight Sun’ is a layered and elegant non-alcoholic aperitif combining wild coastal berries, fresh kelp and pine flavours from the majestic landscapes of the Nordic region.
70cl, 0% ABV.
‘Midnight Sun’ takes inspiration from the wild Nordic regions where daylight ventures through the night. This bottled phenomenon combines hand-picked seaberries and elderberries with the creative use of kelp and pine to give a new perspective on complex flavour combinations.
Crafted by our team of expert distillers, who make a core part of the process at our waterside distillery in Salcombe. We’re proud to keep as much of the process in house as possible and although ‘Midnight Sun’ is inspired by Norway’s rugged landscapes, we’re often able forage for some of the key botanicals locally such as kelp and alexanders.
‘Midnight Sun’ has been carefully distilled and crafted with 7 botanicals and a further 7 natural flavours, all of which have been hand-selected to showcase the flavours of the wild Nordic coastlines and nod towards the pillars of modern Nordic cuisine.

To create our non-alcoholic aperitifs, we make a ‘botanical steep’ using neutral grain spirit and water. The use of alcohol is an important part of the process to extract and carry flavour. The steep is then distilled in our rotary vacuum still; a process that removes the alcohol without removing the flavour. This creates a highly concentrated core flavour distillate, which acts as the backbone of ‘Midnight Sun’. This core flavour distillate is then carefully blended with further natural flavours and stabilised with the unusual use of kombucha.
