Water Of Life / Vin & Vin Brædstrup

Water of Life is Bakkelandet's whiskey, spirits, and wine expert. In the store, you can get excellent, competent service from the knowledgeable staff. Tastings and other events are also regularly held here, where you can get a unique insight into the world of the red and golden drops.

A wonderland for whisky lovers 

Water of Life is located on Søndergade in the center of scenic Brædstrup in Bakkelandet north of Horsens.

This combined shop and showroom offers a wide range of whisky, gin, rum, wines, cognac, liqueurs, port, and champagne. Here, the goal is to deliver the market's best products within these categories - at a fair price.

The name Water of Life refers to the fact, that the word whiskey originally means water of life. And it was precisely the passion for good whiskey that inspired owner Theis Steen Hansen to open his webshop with an accompanying showroom. Whether you are into Speyside, Lowland, Denmark, or somewhere else, you will always find a large selection in this specialty shop.

Water of Life has become a part of the commercial chain, Vin & Vin, therefore, you can also enjoy their large selection of quality wines from all corners of the world. Here, you will find something for every taste – regardless of whether you like sweet or dry or have a preference for a particular grape. Come into the store and let yourself be guided to the right purchase for any occasion.
