"Jeppson's Malört [yeppsons maal-ehrt], a liquor, is a brand of bäsk produced by the Carl Jeppson Company of Chicago. Jeppson's Malört is named after Carl Jeppson, the Swedish immigrant who first popularized and sold the liquor in Chicago. Malört is the Swedishword for wormwood,[1] which is the key ingredient in a bäsk, a bitter-flavored type of Swedish brännvin.

Malört is known for its bitter taste.[2][3][4] It can be found in some Chicago-area taverns and liquor stores, and is growing in popularity there, but it is seldom seen elsewhere in the United States.[1][5

 

 

 

It appears this is a Chicago Specialty.. I am sending back 10 bottles to hand out... Has anyone had this, anyone like this?

I just planted wormwood again, so in a few months I can give you some really vile stuff.

no one in the history of the universe has ever liked malort. it exists for frat boys and ex-frat boys to drink on a dare in bars.


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

"Where you care enough to send the very best..... Or there's always Malort."  Or I like just shortening it to,   There's always Malort.
