ORIGIN OF ULLINS

The Nordic hunting god, foster son of Thor:
In Nordic mythology, Thor, the God of thunder, married Siv. From another relation before marrying Thor, Siv had a son, Ullin, and Thor took him in as his foster son.
Ullin became known as a God of hunting, skiing, archery and shield.
Ullin was strong and handsome, a leader in archery, and his abilities in skiing beyond compare. He was also unbeatable in combat, and was therefore often called upon in war.

The name means the “honorable”. Other known names for Ullin is Ull, Ullr, Uller, Vuldr and Oller.
Ullin is the origin of many names of places still existing in Norway today, such as Ullern in Oslo, Ullensvang in west of Norway, Ullsfjord in Troms. It is also the origin of the name for the municipality Ullensaker (‘Ullins aker’), which also has Ullin pictured on the municipality coat of arms.

Production in balance with nature

The Ullins product range is made purely from natural ingredients and produced in balance with nature.
According to secret recipes, the herb liquers are made from infusions of botanical and medicinal herbs in neutral alcohol, natural flavors and blended with wheat organic neutral spirit and organic sugarcane. Color adjusted by using caramel also made from organic sugarcane.

WHY CHOOSE ORGANIC?

Put simply, organic farming is an agricultural system that seeks to provide you, the consumer, with fresh, tasty and authentic beverages and foods while respecting natural life-cycle systems.
To achieve this, organic farming relies on a number of objectives and principles, as well as common practices designed to minimise the human impact on the environment, while ensuring the agricultural system operates as naturally as possible.
Typical organic farming practices include:

• Excluding or strictly limiting the use of chemical synthetic pesticide and synthetic fertilizer, livestock antibiotics, food additives and processing aids and other inputs
• Absolute prohibition of the use of genetically modified organisms
• Wide crop rotation as a prerequisite for an efficient use of on-site resources
• Taking advantage of on-site resources, such as livestock manure for fertilizer or feed produced on the farm
• Choosing plant and animal species that are resistant to disease and adapted to local conditions
• Raising livestock in free-range, open-air systems and providing them with organic feed

Organic farming is also part of a larger supply chain, which encompasses food processing, distribution and retailing sectors and, ultimately, you.
When you chose an organic product, you can be assured that the production process and the product;
• contributes to a high level of biodiversity and the preservation of species and natural habitats.
• makes responsible use of energy and natural resources.
• takes account of local and regional balances and encourages the use of on-site resources.
• enhances soil life, natural soil fertility and water quality.
• is produced under controlled organic standards.
• guarantees that all enterprises in the organic sector are regularly inspected by authorities.
