Borgholm Brinner Festival Launches Gin Of Its Own: Ginger and Pommegrenade 

There’s no holding back when IN FLAMES curate their own festival. This July will see the world premiere of BORGHOLM BRINNER, featuring a new batch of IN FLAMES gin - 1 000 bottles exclusively produced for the weekend on Öland.


In Flames have set new standards for what a festival experience can be like with BORGHOLM BRINNER. Set in the picturesque castle ruin of Borgholm, fans can not only expect an impressive two-day lineup featuring support acts such as REFUSED, RAISED FIST, DARK TRANQUILLITY and more of Sweden’s favorites, but also a festival of flavours with hand-picked food trucks and barbeque delicacies.

Vocalist Anders Fridén and guitarist Björn Gelotte are owners of the brewery Frequency Beer Works, who will be the sole providers of craft beer to the festival, but now the line-up is completed with an exclusive gin: BORGHOLM BRINNER Gin by In Flames.

Over the past few months, In Flames have ambitiously launched three Swedish gins with different flavours. Each member has put their own personal touch on the releases, leading up to the newest flavour for the festival: Ginger and Pommegrenade.

Singer Anders Fridén says, “Whatever we do, we always give it 100%, and now that we’ve got a festival of our own, of course it has to have a gin to go with it. The combo of ginger and pommegrenade paired exceptionally well with the gin, so we hope that everyone gets to try it when they visit Borgholm Brinner. “

Sari H Wilholm at Brands for Fans, in charge of the gin releases from In Flames, says “Borgholm Brinner Gin by In Flames is a work of passion, just like their previous gin releases. We had a great time in setting the flavours, and ginger and pommegrenade turned out to be a hit as well.”

It will be is available at Systembolaget from July the 23:rd and retails for 619 SEK.
