    Introduction to Nordic Spirit

    Experience a wonderful fusion of science and nature with Nordic Spirit nicotine pouches, a leading brand in the UK market. These innovative nicotine pouches, made from plant-based fibres, offer a hassle-free alternative to traditional nicotine consumption methods. Inspired by the tranquillity and simplicity of the Nordic landscape, Nordic Spirit's nicotine pouches provide a seamless way to enjoy nicotine without any smoke or vapour. You’ll be able to indulge without any compromise!


    Nordic Spirit first hit the scene in Sweden back in 2018, when it launched out of the historic Vårgårda Kvarn (just outside Gothenburg), a mill that's been around since the 15th century. Production of the brand’s pouches has since moved to Poland—just a short hop across the Baltic Sea. Nordic Spirit is a brand deeply rooted in Scandinavian tradition and care. With a focus on using plant-based fibres and providing a small, perfected assortment of flavours, the brand clearly knows what it values and the customer base it is catering to.

    Nordic Spirit Nicotine Pouches – Look & Feel

    Nordic Spirit is a one-of-a-kind brand with a serious passion for stunning Nordic landscapes. Each canister in the Nordic Spirit collection captures the true essence of the region's natural beauty. Imagine yourself soaking up the refreshing chill of a fjord or the crispness of a snow-covered pine forest—that’s the vibe this brand provides.


    The design of each canister is refreshingly minimalistic. Canisters also come with different-coloured lettering, making it easy to identify your desired flavours. This user-friendly colour coding ensures quick recognition for consumers. (For instance, Nordic Spirit Watermelon sports red and green lettering, whereas Nordic Spirit Spearmint rocks a teal-blue mix of colours.) 


    What’s more, these canisters are super lightweight, making them ideal for on-the-go use. Whether in your pocket, tote, or gym bag, Nordic Spirit canisters are an ideal companion!

    Nordic Spirit Nicotine Pouches

    Nordic Spirit nicotine pouches are impressive. They're designed to be super comfy and effortlessly slide under your tongue. The pouches feel amazing—soft yet substantial—and they fit discreetly in your mouth, giving you a satisfying and low-key nicotine experience. (Keep in mind that pouches are not meant to be chewed or swallowed.)


    Here's the best part: Each pouch should keep you satisfied for upwards of an hour! They’re perfect for those never-ending work meetings or family dinners. Plus, every canister comes with 20 pouches (in line with industry standards) so you'll always have plenty to enjoy.

    Nordic Spirit Flavours: What's Available and What's Good?

    Nordic Spirit takes pride in serving up a small yet distinct range of flavours, perfected through meticulous attention to detail. Instead of bombarding you with endless choices, the brand focuses on a handful of flavours, each with its own mouth-watering notes. This approach guarantees that every pouch is expertly crafted!


    Nordic Spirit’s Watermelon flavour is like a burst of summer. Every pouch offers a refreshing sensation alongside fruity, juicy aromas that are irresistibly sweet. This flavour offers the perfect combination of crisp sweetness and subtle tartness—it’s just like sinking your teeth into a ripe, sun-kissed watermelon!


    On the other hand, the Spearmint flavour from Nordic Spirit delivers an invigorating experience. It's refreshingly crisp and minty, with a burst that awakens your senses. And for those of you who enjoy berries, look no further than the Bergamot Wildberry flavour. It blends zesty notes of bergamot with the sweet, tangy flavours of wild berries, resulting in a complex and layered taste profile!

    the range of flavours available

    Nordic Spirit Performance: Does It Hit the Spot?

    Nordic Spirit offers three distinct strengths in its nicotine pouches: 6mg, 9mg, and 11mg per pouch. These options make Nordic Spirit a preferred choice for beginners or those seeking a mild nicotine experience. All strengths ensure a balanced and pleasant experience, staying true to Nordic Spirit's promise of high-quality pouches.


    To make the strength selection process easier, Nordic Spirit, like many brands, follows a simple dot system. This intuitive system visually represents the strength of each pouch, allowing users to grasp and select their preferred strength level. Confused? Just take a gander below at how easy-to-follow Nordic Spirit’s dot system is:


    Regular 2/4 Dot → 6mg per pouch

    Strong 3/4 Dot→ 9mg per pouch

    X-Strong 4/4 Dot → 11mg per pouch


    Check out our Collections page to read more about the strengths Nordic Spirit offers.

    Stephen's Review of Nordic Spirit

    Overall: Nordic Spirit knows exactly who they want to be as a brand. I came away from the experience quite impressed. Rather than offering a ton of flavours, they offer five, all of which are exactly as described. The design and nicotine strengths both fall in line with the brand’s “Nordic” vibe too.

    Pros:
    1. Delicious flavours. They’ve clearly perfected each one.
    2. I appreciated the milder nicotine options, particularly the 6mg and 9mg choices.
    3. The canisters are straightforward. Some brands make it difficult to identify what strength each canister is—Nordic Spirit makes it easy.

    Cons:
    1. While the flavours are certainly quite good, some more fruit-forward options would’ve been nice.

    James' Review of Nordic Spirit

    Overall: Nordic Spirit is a solid brand. They offer a decent strength variety in their 11mg pouch, and the flavours deliver what you’d expect. I was disappointed, though, that there weren’t more citrus-forward options. 

    Pros:
    1. The can design is easy to follow. Also, it’s nice and clean rather than being flashy. I respect that in a brand.
    2. Taste profiles in each flavour are spot-on. It doesn’t get much more accurate than these in terms of taste.
    3. It’s nice that they offer such variety in terms of nicotine strength across flavours. 

    Cons:
    1. While the taste is solid, there aren’t many flavours to choose from. A lot of people will be left in the dust.
    2. Seriously, where’s the citrus? The Bergamot was good … but aside from that, there wasn’t much.

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.5/5


     

    Clare's Review of Nordic Spirit

    Overall: Nordic Spirit is a really nice brand! The flavours are delicious, especially if you’re a mint fan like me. They offer milder and lighter nicotine strengths too, which I loved. The one downside is that they do not offer all that many flavours. But that's not always a bad thing!

    Pros:
    1. The minty flavours are SO GOOD. They’re exactly what I am always looking for in terms of a refreshing taste. 
    2. The nicotine strengths were mild and lovely.
    3. The dot system they use is very straightforward. Some brands make it too difficult to understand! 

    Cons:
    1. I like a bit more flair than this on my can design. They could stand to spruce it up a bit!

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nordic Spirit Mocha Flavour

    Clare: What a pleasant surprise! Now I'm craving a mocha from my local cafe ... Might have to go buy one! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5
