In 1993 Sweden received the first new punsch for 76 years – Facile XO. Served 6 times (year 2000, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014) at the Nobel Awards gala dinner at the City hall in Stockholm, Sweden and continuing to build on it's reputation as the finest in it's category. Carefully selected Batavia arracks and rums from Jamaica stored in oak barrels to achieve maximum complexity before blending.
Swedish punsch history
When the East Indian Company's first ship "Fredricius Rex Suecia" returned to Gothenburg Sweden from her maiden voyage in 1733, she had something in her cargo from Batavia, Indonesia, that was to radically change Swedish drinking customs – arrack.
Punsch – based on arrack – became much appreciated throughout the Swedish society and the Swedes took punsch to their heart as a symbol of celebration, joy and tradition.
Originally punsch was drunk warm. Later on, it was consumed well chilled. Today punsch is a much valued after-dinner drink. Punsch and arrack are also most suitable drink ingredients.
