Aquavit (or Akvavit), literally translated as “water of life”, is a traditional pale grape or grain spirit first distilled centuries ago in the pastoral regions of Northern Italy, France, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark. The best known brands are the Swedish O.P. Anderson , the Norweigian Gambol of Linie and the Danish Aarlborg. The recipe for classic Aalborg Taffel Akvavit has been the same for more than 150 years and its consistent quality has confirmed Akavavits position as Denmarks national drink. The Danish poet Jørgen Vibe wrote: “Aalborg Taffel Akvavit lights the fires of delight. And keeps our spirits burning bright”.
Akvavit is crystal clear with refined caraway flavor, lemon peel and a hint of aniseed. Our classic Aalborg Taffel Akvavit has a very pure caraway bouquet which is only supported by a slight hint of orange. Its full body and aromas make it all the way around your palate.
