During the last week of October 2016 the world’s most northerly distillery produced its first new-make whisky spirit.
The Aurora Spirit Distillery only went into operation a few moths ago and had so far only produced Aquavit, Vodka and Gin, but finally they were ready for the King of Spirits! Here is a gallery of images from this memorable event.
