Bornholm Spirits – Danish Snaps
On the Caribbean islands of Trinidad & Tobago you will find the spicy chili Trinidad Moruga Scorpion and other exciting chili varieties. The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, with its blistering 2,009,231 scovilles, was voted the world’s strongest chili in 2012. The Scorpion name refers to the tip of the chili, which is said to sting like the sting of a scorpion. We have brought it & other varieties home to our milder climate on Bornholm, where they are allowed to heat this chili schnapps.
Slight hint of chili in the scent. More distinctive in the taste, which starts with a slight sweetness and then the chili comes roaring. An exciting and different schnapps, which, however, can be difficult to add to traditional Christmas lunch food. Very long and persistent aftertaste.
Behind Snaps Bornholm are three friends – Simon Lorentzo Jensen, John Oxlade and Jesper Kleine Rasmussen. Over several years, they have privately made their own chili schnapps, which has been very popular among friends. In 2015, the idea of putting the schnapps into production arose, and the search for a producing partner began. That led them to Bornholm and to De Bornholmske Spritfabrikker in Nexø. The meeting with Bornholm and the owner Niels Frost Jensen and his wife Erna made it clear that they had found the perfect business partner. Niels shares their great passion for schnapps, and it didn’t take long for them to agree to play and experiment with natural, organic ingredients to arrive at a Bornholm schnapps of the finest quality. A schnapps brewed on proud traditions with a modern twist that piques curiosity and provokes the senses.
