Spirit NOTES

This bottle is limited to 1 per member

One of the Panel members, who should know, commented ‘just like in a Russian banya’ (for you and me: a bathhouse with sauna, steam room, body scrubs with Russian food and drink) – what could the drink be? Metaphorically naked (when in Rome, do …) the taste was hot, medicinal and sea-weedy as well as, yes, smoky! Next came the steaming ritual, someone added more water with a little spruce oil sprinkled onto the stones and helicoptered a towel around above our heads. Then in the finish a beating with a wad of birch trees branches and eucalyptus leaves – take your time, relax and enjoy!
