The instructions in the email were intriguingly vague. "Take the subway at 18:06 from Oslo Central Station all the way to Voksenkollen" – some twenty stops and 500 vertical metres away, and roughly where the compact urban-ness of Oslo gives way to the vast expanse of wooded hills that is Oslomarka.
We invited a few local cocktail bartenders to show us their take on Nordic flavours. With a bag full of Norwegian booze, dried lavender, local coffee, seabuckthorn and more, we met up with Anders Bakke from Oslo Cocktail Conference at Fuglen´s offices to give these babies a try. Photos: A.Kleiberg
