Blossa brings warmth into the cold Nordic Winter. It is the most popular glögg in Sweden, with the original recipe from 1865. Johan Daniel Grönstedt was one of the most prominent wine merchants in Stockholm in the 19th century. He was famous for his cognac, port and glögg, which were based on recipes he created using fortified wines, cognac and spice blends. These recipes are still in use today.
Glögg was seen as a very exclusive beverage to start with, but in the late 19th century it became more available for “ordinary” consumers and became very popular. Glögg’s popularity in the Nordics originates from the tradition of drinking fortified, sweeter wines often spiced with citrus, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and ginger.
The genuine ingredients are key. All Blossa glöggs, even the non- alcoholic, are based on wines from vineyards from Southern Europe to give Blossa glögg its characteristic flavour of dried fruits and raisins. We also add the finest sugar from sugar beets to ensure the precise sweetness we are famous for, and then there are the spices! The right spices are carefully selected to ensure Blossa’s taste profile.
