    Aquavit (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.

Tasting Notes

"This aquavit starts off with bright aromas of lemon verbena and dill, with a slight sweetness. On the palate, there's a strong spice flavor followed by light, but distinct fennel and caraway notes. The palate fades into a licorice-like tingle. "
