Linie Aquavit Original is made using a recipe which is unchanged for over 200 years. It is a potato-based spirit flavored with caraway and aniseed. The aquavit is placed into Spanish oloroso sherry casks and sent on a round-trip sea voyage from Norway to Australia which takes about 4 months crossing the equator twice. The aquavit ages a total of 16 months and is bottled at 41.5%.

Tasting Notes

"There’s caraway, black licorice and touches of orange peel, followed by a whiff of vanilla. Overall the nose is fairly herbal. A minty arrival on the palate, combined with oak, some grassy notes and some very subtle red fruits, but also more of that black licorice. Tasty, yet a little shy at times."
