Gammel dansk

One for the memory books, bit like southern comfort, soothing but too much is enough! I couldn't drink often, best saved for the flavour and occasion.

Nice and refreshing without any after taste of alcohol.

Bitter dram, aperatif, digestive

I am a Dane living in the US. My father was a knight in the order of Dannebrog of the Queen of Denmark. Gammel Dansk is beyond description. It is a mountain of flavor and an adventuresome experience. I hope that someday it is again available in the US.

G.D. with tonic.

When I return from Denmark I buy a Gammel Dansk, the best recipe: 1 part G.D.,
four parts tonic water, ice...
is there any better on warm days?

Wonderfully bitter and refreshing

Very good! Trying it with a new friend from Denmark who has brought a few different drinks to try including this. It smells delightfully of citrus and herbs. Made my stomach feel much better after last night and drinking so much!

My favorite

Soothing drink with complex flavor

Best way to complete the ceremony 😋

It goes very well with Anthon Berg ~ marzipan/blueberry chocolate, and best thing is to drink an espresso shut after this to complete the ceremony 😋

Incredible stuff, not like anything I've tasted. It's a refined taste, but one you'll certainly remember.

It is my after dinner favorite drink.

I love it. My wife's Danish relatives turned me on to it. After developing a taste for it it is my favorite after dinner drink. My biggest complaint is finding it the southwestern USA.

24th February 2017

I like it.

It tastes like herb remedies. I love it.

Amazing

Simply amazing! My favourite by far.

Love the Complex Taste

They say the better your pallet the more likely you are to enjoy this amazing drink. A shot in the morning gives the day a much better kick start then coffee.

Good Stuff

I bought a bottle of Gammel Dansk in Edmonton Canada. My Dad was Danish and I remember him drinking it when he relaxed in the evening. I like it; definitely an acquired taste but I love the hints of cinnamon, orange and other spices with the after bitter kick. Warming and it sure cures a cold!

25th April 2016

Use it medicinally

I picked up a bottle in duty-free at Copenhagen airport a few years ago. A friend who's a frequent traveler to Aarhus on business remarked that many Danes stop for a shot before heading into the office. He also said it's great if you're coming down with a cold or the flu and need to keep moving. I recommend a shot at breakfast on January 1 after you've had too much New Year's Eve.

Gl. Dansk

I was born in Danmark and have had it since I was 15 - now 53 - and always enjoyed the taste and the warmth it gives you. I drink it once in a while, but never abused it

Great with cigar

The Old Dane

the better the chef the more likely you are to appreciate this amazing and delightful drink. I like mine with brunch. It's wonderful for special occasions.

Gammel Dansk is the best drink ever!

It is my favourite drink by quite some margin. It is an acquired taste, I sipped it first almost 30 years ago and only just managed not to spit it out. I was quite astonished to see that my Danish friends enjoyed it so I had another go. To cut the story short, it is a drink I am always bringing back from Scandinavian countries, and always run out of it shortly after. It is just brilliant, and highly immensely enjoyable.

Best cure for motion sickness ever, as long as it's taken early, before you feel unwell. Everything else I've tried is either unreliable or has side effects. I rode out a force 9 on a ferry in the North Sea able to walk about, eat and enjoy talking to the few people who were able to remain upright on the journey. It does taste medicinal, however, so don't expect to feel delighted until after you've downed it!

for a full stomach, gammel dansk is the best

24th May 2014

Beats Underberg and is the best IMO

too bad US stopped importing this a few years ago. it is by far the best

One of a kind

People either love Gammel Dansk or hate it, I have yet meet anyone without a strong opinion. I am among those that loves it, while my wife thinks it tastes like medicine. If you like exotic and complex flavors of the non-sweet variety you should at least try it. I have yet to taste anything truly similar. And thanks MoM, for making it available to the US.

12th July 2013

Good Stuff!

I love this drink. It's good for the tummy to ease constipation and most importantly 'men' drink. It drives my libido.

8th July 2013

Memories...

I was married to a Danish girl for 7 years and following the instructions from her drank it morning noon and night. The ultimate was quaffing from a mini coup glass (correct way) in the Christian IV in Hirshals. Great days. Now I'm older (much) I drink it to cure all the normal ailments of an oldie. Beats ibroprofum any day. Anyone seen Hanne Fuglsang anywhere by the way?

20th November 2012

Apples and oranges!

That is like saying I like soda pop but prefer prime rib! Both are very Danish, both drank for different reasons at different times.
