Marka is a Norwegian-style digestive bitters from Oslo Håndverksdestilleri, the first distillery to open in Norway since 1927. A blend of 16 botanicals including juniper, gentian, wormwood and angelica, this is best enjoyed either with tonic water or in the traditional Norwegian manner – with beer, including sweeter amber ales or lower-strength Belgian beers. This pairs well with games, duck or roast beef, as well as on its own as a digestif.Tasting Notes (1)
Marka Cask Matured Norwegian Bitters Half Litre
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom
Exotic and spiced, there’s touches of laurel oiliness, bog myrtle and a gentle, fleshed out, citric sweetness. This then broadens into a sweet/sour/bitter complex melange of roots, herbs, and spices. Heady. In time, it rises into a menthol area, while at the same time digging itself into the moistened earth. Complex in other words.
Very intense and drier than the nose suggests but with enough of a rounded palate to balance. This is a cleansing draft, with the dusty, forest floor flavours of gentian and calamus held in check by subtle sweetness and that citric element.
The bitter notes come through but that balance is always well maintained. I like it.
