About Aurora Spirit – The world’s northernmost Distillery:
A few hours from Tromso (Norway), at the foot of the Lyngen Alps, you’ll find the world’s northernmost distillery; Aurora Spirit. Located deep within the Arctic Circle, and surrounded by alpine peaks, nearby fjords and with views of the arctic wilderness and Northern Lights, the setting for making whisky is truly stunning!
As if the environs were not enough, the workings of the distillery are no less intriguing. It was built within a disused NATO Cold War base, and the maturation of its whisky takes place within its network of underground tunnels.

More About The Water of Life – A Whisky Film
The Water of Life – A Whisky Film is a feature documentary that focuses on the craftsmen, chemists, and renegades at the heart of the whisky revolution that turned the stagnant scotch whisky industry of the 1980s into the titan it is today.
Starting behind the locked gates of an abandoned distillery, Jim McEwan and Mark Reynier share their personal experiences of the risk-taking and wild experimentation they used to turn Bruichladdich into a creative and financial powerhouse.
The film also takes you on the journeys of visionaries like Gordon & MacPhail, Billy Walker, Dr. Rachel Barrie and David Stewart, whose mixture of talent, chemistry, hard work, grit, and a little sprinkle of magic paved the way for the next generation of innovators like Adam Hannett, Kelsey McKechnie, Liam Hughes, Iain Croucher, and Eddie Brook.
The Water of Life – A Whisky Film is a uniquely personal perspective on the evolution of whisky by those who lived it – the story of those who played a key part in rediscovering the crafting of the ancient spirit.
