How long can you keep a bottle of Blossa Lätt Vinglögg or Non-alcoholic glögg?
Unopened bottle: An unopened bottle of Blossa Lätt Vinglögg lasts over two seasons, which means about 24 months from the production date. Best before date on the bottle. Blossa Lätt Vinglögg does not go bad like fresh food, but the best before date says the product meets our sensory requirements. What happens to the product over time is that the flavor profile continuously changes, and if it is stored for a long time, the sensory profile will go from glögg to a profile similar to a fortified wine. The taste of glögg decreases with age, but if you try the product and think it is good, it can be consumed even though the best before date has passed. The product keeps well if stored unopened in a dark and cool place that maintains an even temperature.

It looks like broken glass in my bottle. What is it?
What is described is most likely sedimentation at the bottom of the bottle. It looks like white little "flakes" in the bottle. The reason is that salts are precipitated in the wine after a period of storage. In terms of taste, you don't feel any change in glögg.
