Schwedenbitter is a mixture of 20 types of herbs which has a favourable effect to digestive tract and problems with most internal organs. Allegedly, the first Sweden bitter was created in the 17th century by a Swedish doctor Claus Samst. Its roots, however, can be traced 500 years ago. The most special ingredient is the venetian teriac, somewhat mystical combination of oils, resin and medicinal herbs. This recipe became the most popular in Austria and Germany. Encian produces this tincture according to the original recipe with predominantly domestic medicinal herbs.
