V&S Distillers (formerly Danish Distillers) is Scandinavia’s largest producer and supplier of spirits for consumption. The foundation for Danish Distillers has always been aquavit. The company was founded by C.A. Olesen and C.F. Tietgen in 1881. Both were enterprising businessmen, and they resolved together to create a company that would produce and sell the finest Danish distilled spirits – this marked the beginning of a comprehensive series of acquisitions of the best Danish distilleries. Their production is therefore based on old Danish distillery traditions, and many of tje products are still being produced today using their original recipes.
