We set out to make a spirit based on plum kernel. Plum kernels lie within the pits of all plums. They have a rich fragrance, fruity top notes, and marzipan undertones. In both appearance and taste, they most closely resemble almonds. We get ours from the Stanley variety of plums, known for its plump, dark blue-skinned fruit with yellow flesh.

Named after the goddess of love, based on an ingredient that only blooms once a year, and only 200 bottles made in total, Freyja is fittingly best enjoyed with Champagne. For this refreshing serve, opt for a crisp, dry Champagne to complement the elderflower spirit’s natural, subtle sweetness.
