Spirit of Hven Tycho's Star Whiskey 750ml
This whisky is named Tycho’s Star as a tribute to the most famous islander yet, the astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601). The whisky has dark, almost mystical notes of leather and liquorice, embraced by a round scent of ripe plums. All this is elevated and refreshed by fragrances of apple and elderflowers. Newly harvested hay and honeydew meadows give a soft finish.
The name Tycho’s Star refers to the supernova that Tycho Brahe observed in the asterism Cassiopeia 1572. He called it “De Nova Stella” and made a term of the expression Nova, that nowadays are used to describe new stars.
Tycho ́s Star is bottled at site on Hven at 41,8 vol%, without carbon- or chill filtering, no colouring or additives. It is Organic certified, completely natural, as should be. Every bottle are individually numbered and controlled before being waxed by hand.
