Jeppson’s Malort Barrel Aged
This is the same Jeppson’s Malort everyone has come to know and love, but aged in whiskey and rum barrels.
Jeppson’s Malort is Chicago’s local beskbrannvin – a style of bitter, wormwood-based, Swedish schnapps. First developed during medieval times for its supposed medicinal benefits, it’s traditionally associated with the farms of Skane, in Sweden, where wormwood grows wild. In the early 1900s, it was the most ubiquitous drink in Sweden and accompanied the nearly 1 million Swedes who immigrated to the U.S. during that period. One of those immigrants was a man from Ystad, Skane named Carl Jeppson.
