A range of non-alcoholic wine alternatives that aim to give people a better option and an experience that doesn’t compromise on flavour.
Christian & Alex, brothers who from a young age have been inspired by the nature of our home country, Norway. In 2015 they set out on an adventure to launch Norway’s first Premium No & Low distribution agency, LESKE. During this process they met inspiring nordic chefs & sommeliers which reconnected them with modern Scandinavian cuisine through foraging & fermentation. They started to understand that there was something missing within the non-alcoholic wine occasion and set out to redefine the category.
From what started out as fermented spruce needles in a garage quickly become a full-time passion project, involving skilled food scientists & a dedicated lab space. Ambijus was born.
Redefining the non-alcoholic wine occasion using nature & innovation
PROCESS & MANUFACTURING
Our inspiration comes from the Nordic landscape, boreal forests to unspoilt fjords and everything in-between. We work with real ingredients native to Norway and extract their flavours and aromas using various techniques including fermentation, maceration & distillation.
