The original botanical recipe of LINIE Aquavit has remained unchanged since its creation, more than 200 years ago.
LINIE is a potato-based spirit, distilled in pot stills with a special blend of Nordic herbs and spices to give it its distinct flavour. The young spirit is placed in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks to develop further. Ultimately the casks are sent on a sea journey across the world to mature.
The result is an extraordinarily smooth and well balanced aquavit with leading notes of caraway and star anise - and finer hints of vanilla and sherry.
Stored in former Sherry casks, this aquavit famously takes a sea voyage across the world, sailing to Australia and back, crossing the equator or "linie" twice. The end result is a bright buttercup hue and mellow vanilla, spearmint, clove and oak tones, plus a silky butterscotch finish.
