Linie's botanical recipe has remained unchanged for over 200 years. This aquavit is a potato-based spirit that is distilled in pot stills with a special blend of Nordic herbs and spices to give it its distinct flavor. The young spirit is placed in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks to develop further. Ultimately the casks are sent on a four month sea journey across the world to mature.
A light amber colored spirit with a nose that combines caraway, aniseed, and orange peel with a delicate hint of vanilla. On the palate, oak combines with the caraway and aniseed to give great complexity, while old sherry notes give a rich, well-rounded flavor. The well-composed aftertaste of spices and sherry lingers for a few minutes.
This extraordinarily smooth and well-balanced aquavit is perfect in a cocktail and as a companion for a light beer. It's also ideal for accompanying smoked salmon, marinated fish and other mild-flavored seafood dishes — remember to serve at room temperature in a tulip shaped glass to enhance the aromas.
