Lysholm's Linie Aquavit Liqueur Norway 83@ 750ml

Lysholm's Linie Aquavit Liqueur Norway 83@

Norwegian Aquavit is different from other Aquavit mainly because it is made only from potatoes, and aged in used Sherry casks. Most of the recipes remain secretly guarded, but most of them are spiced with caraway and anise. Light golden copper, citrus, anise and caraway. Best with not too heavy food.

Linie has a rich, smooth profile with notes of aniseed and caraway. Matured in old sherry casks, it also has slight notes of oak and a kiss of sherry, adding complexity.

Aquavit is Norway's national drink, and the most famous is the Linie Aquavit, so called because it is shipped to Australia and back, across the Equatorial Line, in oak barrels to produce its traditional mellow flavor. This invention was the product of a failed business venture of Jorgen Lysholm, a distillery's owner, who did not sell his barrels of Akevitt in Asia as planned and they were returned to him. Upon inspection, he found that the spirit had changed and had acquired a richer flavor. After this event, Lysholm began loading barrels of Aquavit onto freighters carrying dried cod for export around the world, and retrieving them at the end of the trip.

Served it from the freezer icy cold. Serve it in a chilled shot glass. Serve it with a cold beer and some danish food (although the product is Norwegian), like salmon gravlox, herrings, and fresh Sauteed Flounder with Beaurre Blanc. It is getting difficult to find a good danish schnapps in California, and Lysholm's is the best substitute when looking for schnapps. It also has a good story behind it. Skol!
