Distilled in Copenhagen, AMASS Vodka with Marigold, Chamomile, and Lemon celebrates Nordic distilling tradition and the rich, vibrant history of Scandinavian drinking culture. Introducing an unconventional production method, botanicals are carefully distilled on an Aquavit still to create a heart with subtle layers of flowers folded around fresh, hand-grated citrus. Inspired by the city’s long summer evenings and longer winter nights, the result is a light, elegant spirit that pays tribute to Nordic drinking tradition, perfectly suited for a variety of cocktails and seasons.

Citrus and warm lemon drop candy turn to hay and sweet tea, before fading to frost and cold iron.
Bitter lemon first, then grassy notes of dry summer and iced tea.
More hay and wild flowers, and then finally cereal and a grainy sweetness.
A Clean Botanical Spirit
In building a botanic vodka, AMASS Chief Product Officer and Master Distiller Morgan McLachlan wanted to respect the traditions surrounding vodka, without feeling constrained by them. She searched for a partner with long-standing experience in the Aquavit tradition and a demonstrated commitment to high-quality ingredients. She found both in Henrik Brinks and Lasse Öznek, whose Copenhagen operation sits at the intersection of Scandinavian distilling tradition and the new Danish cuisine, with its emphasis on seasonality and sustainability.
As a result of their long and demonstrated experience with Aquavit, our Copenhagen partners have perfected a method for capturing the essence of botanicals. Chamomile flowers, lemon zest, and marigold petals are distilled on an Aquavit still in order to imbue the spirit with subtle floral and citrus notes. True to minimalist Danish design philosophy, we sought to introduce as few botanicals to the vodka as possible, with a focus on extracting the maximum taste and flavor out of a minimum number of ingredients.
