WHO OR WHAT IS ÖSELBIRCH?

ÖselBirch birch water drinks are inspired by our beloved Grandma from Saaremaa (aka. Ösel). Every spring she would tap the trees and collect the nutritious and tasty birch sap and prepare it for fermentation. The fermented brich water was ready by the summer holidays and was the best refreshment on a hot day on a hayfield.

Although our Grandma is still vital and full of power, her birch water supplies are somewhat limited. That’s why we collaborate with several birch sap collectors all over Estonia to bring you this refreshing  drink that we have enjoyed for years.

Birch water is tapped from birch trees in the early spring. Just right after the snow melts. In Nordic cultures, it has traditionally been the best revitalising drink from the nature. It nourishes the body with natural trace minerals and vitamins. Some even consider it to be a youth elixir.

CAN I HAVE A BÖRCH, PLEASE?

Why, of course!

Börches are more than just a better alternative to soft drinks! Birch water contains antioxidants like Manganese, traces of other important minerals and vitamins like Magnesium, Vitamin C and so on. You name it, birch water most likely has it!

From our grandmother we learned the sustainable craft of tapping birch water and the craft of fermenting, which gives beneficial lactic acid bacteria and a unique taste bouquet.
An innovative and sustainable refresher based on Nordic traditions. 

 


Our commitment to the environment and sustainability

There is only one planet and we need to treat it with respect and love. This is why we do NOT cut down the trees to collect birch water, instead we collect it in a sustainable way ensuring that the same trees can be tapped for several years to come. This way of tapping birch water is more cost-intensive but keeps the trees for further CO2 absorption.

Part of our profits also go towards non-profit organisations: Every bottle sold donates 3 cents towards World Cleanup Day and we are dedicated to planting new trees with Plant-for-the-planet.org (Click on link to see our tree-counter)

BIRCH SAP: NATURAL ENERGY DRINK

Every spring, when the snow melts it means that the nature is waking up after a long winter. So are the birch trees warming up and drawing gallons of water from far beneath the frozen surface of the soil. When tapping these trees, a perfectly clear liquid starts to flow. Harvest time for birch water is brief lasting only a few weeks until the leaf buds burst open. Birch sap is drinkable straight from the tree and when fresh it tastes faintly sweet…
