Oslo Handverksdestilleri (OHD) has launched Vidda Torr (dry) Gin, made using Norwegian botanicals. Vidda, which means 'mountain plateau', features juniper, heather, yarrow, chamomile flower, bilberry, angelica root and meadowsweet. 

"Nature is our inspiration," said head distiller Dave Gardonio. "The conditions of the seasons in Norway means we experience short, intense growing seasons that greatly impact the flavour of the wild herbs and spices that grow around us. We use these naturalised botanicals to create the distinct aroma and taste of Vidda."

OHD was established in 2015. The distillery, located in the Bryn area of Oslo, is currently under construction. Currently, Vidda is produced at Aegir brewery, where Gardonio was formerly head brewer.
