HIMKOK // Norway
HIMKOK Distillery is a craft distillery located in Oslo, Norway. The distillery produces vodka and gin, but their primary focus is on aquavit. HIMKOK Aquavit is made with a potato spirit as the base along with caraway (and other spices and citrus), but it is not aged. Norwegian Aquavit has a Geographical Indication (GI) which dictates that it must be aged as well as being made from 95% Norwegian potatoes. So despite the fact that it is distilled in Norway, it cannot be called "Norwegian Aquavit" as it isn't aged.
AquavitAquavit (aka akvavit) is a predominantly caraway and/or dill flavored spirit made using a neutral spirit base distilled from potatoes or grain. Other botanicals can be used and it can be aged, but neither are required. Traditionally made in Scandinavia, but can be produced anywhere.
