The taste of the North

LINIE Aquavit is not only the oldest aquavit brand in the world but also the most known.

The Norwegian aquavit matures in old oak sherry casks on the high seas. On this journey, the aquavit develops its incomparable softness and unmistakable taste. LINIE Aquavit has been produced in Norway according to the original recipe since 1805. 

Grown, produced and distilled in the North

LINIE Aquavit is distilled from potato-based alcohol in a pot-still process with fine herbs and spices. The aquavit is then placed in oak barrels in which sherry has been previously stored. Through this maturation, LINIE Aquavit gains its golden color, notes of vanilla and wood, and a subtle sweetness.

The result is the uniquely deep flavor nuances of caraway and star anise, followed by fine notes of vanilla and sherry, and an unexpected softness.
