Arctic Luxury

Lignell & Piispanen produces unique liqueurs from arctic berries. Their success is based on knowledge about the products of nature and traditional extraction passed down from generation to generation. Lignell & Piispanen is a trading name of the family business Oy Gust. Ranin, established 1852.

In 1852 Gustav Ranin started the family business by purchasing the Crown Distillery, founded in 1783 in the city of Kuopio by King Gustav III of Sweden. Gustav Ranin’s legacy lives on in Lignell & Piispanen’s business. Ever since the day he took on the king’s distillery, from generation to generation, from father to son, Lignell & Piispanen has learned through experience and increased our knowledge with the goal of creating the world’s finest liqueurs, vodkas and wines from Mother Nature’s arctic splendour. 

Much advancement has been made over the course of centuries, and each generation has left its mark and added to our knowledge. But there is one thing that has never changed: family’s promise to make Arctic luxury.


For Lignell & Piispanen, this means a respect for the arctic wilderness, an artisan approach to its pure berries and a continuous effort to achieve better and better results; flavours that highlight the four distinct seasons of the northern hemisphere. 



LIQUEUR · 21% ABV · 0.5 l

The secret of this unique liqueur is the Arctic cloudberry, which grows wild near the Arctic Circle. During the short northern summer, the midnight sun gives the cloudberry a uniquely clear flavour.

A rich, amber-coloured liqueur with a strong aroma is created, in which you can sense the aromas of arctic wetland flowers, honey and apricots. Best on its own, but also good in various cocktails.

This traditional liqueur was awarded two gold medals at the Paris world fair in 1900. The liqueur's most important raw material, the Arctic bramble, grows only in Northern Finland.

Following tradition, the essence of the berries is extracted to create a flavour which can be compared to fruity chocolate. Arctic Bramble liqueur is good as an apéritif and perfect in cocktails. Also try it with soft-ripened cheeses and as a sauce over desserts.
