It all starts back in 2015, when Carsten and Morten visit different distilleries while traveling abroad. 2 years and several visits later, Mads gets involved, and the 3 colleagues agree to start a distillery. The location will be in a side building to the main house at Carsten, as the children have moved out, and there’s available space.
The 3 founders have been colleagues for many years, and worked a large part of their careers in the IT industry. Carsten’s insight into the product and method, Mads ’extensive knowledge of fauna and flora, as well as Morten’s background and experience as a production engineer and work in the food industry have been the right combination and foundation for the distillery.
The distillery is run in the spare time as both have daily jobs to attend.
In 2019, Mads chose to step out of the distillery, and today the distillery is run by Carsten and Morten.
