“We chose to use the name Bivrost for our product line. In Norse mythology this was the bridge one had to cross to leave Earth and enter the good life with Thor and Odin in Valhalla, and there are signs that indicate that Bivrost actually was the northern lights,” explains Tor Petter W. Christensen, co-founder of the distillery Aurora Spirit. Located by the Lyngenfjord, with the in-famous Lyngen Alps in view, the distillery has been established on an old NATO fort from the cold war. “We thought it would be a cool location, and actually the bunkers at the fort have proved to be the ideal storage space,” Christensen says and adds that old meets new with the hyper-modern iPad-controlled distillery equipment in the fort.
