A vitamin rich sap
Birch sap has been harvested since ancient times in our arctic areas and used as an important nutritional supplement during early spring when the lack of vitamin-rich products was severe in this region. The birch soaks crystal clear water from Storsjön's mineral rich soil when the frozen ground melts in the spring. The tree transforms the water into sap, which can be harvested, and enjoyed as a beverage.
The birch sap is tapped from well selected birches in forests near the mountains in Jämtland, which is then slowly fermented into birch wine according to a recipe from 1785. Sav™ Fjällvin is a gift of the forest, or as it is called in latin: Silva Donum.
