What you'll do

You will meet us at Heiðmörk, a nature preserve that that is actually within the Reykjavik city limits (GPS coordinates will be sent before the event, according to what's flourishing in the forest). Together, we will forage for seasonal wild botanical ingredients, then you will have the opportunity to concoct your very own aquavit blend in a 250ml bottle. We provide the bottle and neutral spirit for infusion. Then we will secure the bottle for your journey home, and in 6 weeks, you will have your very own wildcrafted aquavit from Iceland. What a treat! (No alcohol will be consumed during our event.)

Cassie

My husband, chef Carl K Frederiksen, and I started Wild Caught Found when we moved to Iceland two years ago. As a sommelier, aromatherapist, meditator and event producer, I have always been drawn to the natural, great food and it’s source. And with Carl being from a Nordic country, foraging is in his cooking lineage. We developed Wild Caught Found to marry both of our interests and together have hosted formal dinners and other pop-up events in Reykjavik and overseas. We are @wildcaughtfound on instagram and at wildcaughtfound.com.

What's included

Drinks
Secure bottle of aquavit with ingredients foraged by each guest. (To be opened at least 6 weeks from the event date.)

Where you'll be

Heiðmörk is one of Reykjavik’s best keep secrets! With miles of trails through trees, along lakes, and volcanic landforms, it is easy to feel like you are far away from the city. Because of its vastness and variety, Heiðmörk also offers multiple places for us to forage throughout the spring and summer season.
