The aquavit guild at Herregården Hessel

The aquavit guild from Herregården Hessel is a team of inspiring and passionate people who live and breathe for herbs, berries and aquavit. You can meet them and get a taste at various events or at activities at Herregården Hessel, where they are always ready for a chat about aquavit.

The members of the aquavit guild at Herregården Hessel are people who love aquavit which is made of different herbs and loves to make it themselves – from growing the herbs to collecting them and brewing the aquavit and finally, to handing out the aquavit for other people to taste.

Every year the guild is hosting events and are participating in events like the Veteran Tractor Rally in Haubro, Asmild Plantecenter in Viborg, the cattle show in Løgstør, Aars and Hjørring, the mussels festival in Løgstør, Hot Summer and Christmas By Night in Farsø, etc.

Besides this, the aquavit guild also attends the events at Herregården Hessel: Harvest Say and Manor Day in August, Fallday in september as well as Christmas on Hessel in November. In addition to this, the guild is also taking care of the herb garden at Herregården Hessel.
