Swedish Schnapps

SWEDISH SCHNAPPS (SNAPS)

Schnapps has been an important part of Swedish food and drinking culture since the 18th century.

Back then it was considered to be both nourishing and a cure to various illnesses. This is one of the reasons it tastes so strong since the general thought was just like medicine, therefore it had to have a strong and bitter taste.

Unlike the German fruit distilled schnapps and the American sweetened alcohol called schnapps, in Sweden schnapps means herb flavored vodka.

In Sweden we usually drink the schnapps with food, especially during the big eating Holidays, such as Christmas, Easter and the Midsummer Festival. The strong flavor of the schnapps fits very well with the salty flavor of marinated herring and fatty pork dishes. Nowadays it’s also drunk on the rocks like any other alcohol. At Hemlagat we are spicing our own Schnapps.

스납스는 18세기부터 스웨덴 음식, 음주 문화에 중요한 부분을 차지하고 있습니다.  예전에는 스납스에 영양과 약효가 있다고 여겨져 즐겨마셨으며 일반적으로 약처럼 강하고 쓴맛이 강조되었습니다.

독일의 슈납스가 과일을 증류한 것이고 미국의 슈납스가 달콤한 리큐르인 것과 달리 북유럽의 스납스는 향이 첨가된 보드카를 뜻합니다.

스웨덴에서는 스납스를 음식과 함께 마시며 특히 명절 만찬과 함께 마십니다. 스웨덴의 대표적인 명절로는 미드서머와 크리스마스, 부활절이 있습니다.  스납스의 강한 맛과 향은 짭짤한 헤링(청어)요리와  돼지고기 요리에 잘 어울립니다.

헴라갓에서는 다양한 종류의 스납스를 직접 만들어 준비하고 있습니다.
