Mattson’s Vatten-dröm

I’ve been making my own Aquavit and am pretty stoked on the results, so here’s a label I designed to honor my Swedish / Finnish family over seas. More to come!

Tagga Ned means bring your spikes down (i.e.. chill out).

My great, great grandfather Matias Mattson went down with his ship at sea. It wasn’t the ship pictured, which is the Pommern and is moored in Miriehamn on the same island. Vatten-dröm roughly translates as “water dream”. The Åland Islands are very special to me, as was drinking Akvavit with my folks around holidays.
