Aurora Spirit Distillery
Aurora Spirit distillery is the world's northernmost whiskey distillery and is located 69 ° North in Årøybukt. Surrounded by the Lyngen Alps, the Lyngenfjord and views of the Arctic landscape and the northern lights, the location is spectacular! As if nature were not enough, the area the distillery is located on is just as exciting. It is built on a former NATO Cold War base, and the maturation of whiskey takes place in the network of tunnels and bunkers in the area.
The spirit of the distillery is sold under the Bivrost brand. Bivrost, a word that dates back to Norse times, with roots in a 1000-year-old Viking legend of the Northern Lights. The Vikings called the northern lights "bivrost" - directly translated it means "bending bridge". They thought the northern lights were the bridge for the gods between Midgard and Åsgard.
