Blossa 16 - a tribute to the Swedish wildwood
We are happy to finally present Blossa 16! In order to find unexplored and exciting flavors, you don’t need to travel far. Blossa’s most exotic taste ever origins from Sweden. In 2016 the coordinates 63°69'72.0"N 13°81'76.7”W bring us to the northern forest Storskogen and the flavors Crowberry and caramelized Birch Sap with a hint of smoke. The design scheme is a tribute to the mystery and depths of the Swedish forests, and the gold elements symbolize the treasure of flavors to be found. Concept and design by Scandinavian Design Group, illustration by Petra Börner.
