This is a modernist Aquavit with the sensibility of a 21st century gin. The nose shows caraway, white pepper, fennel, citrus, rosemary stem, and some orange zest. The palate is soft and pretty with forward flavors of fennel, some citrus and a bit of rosemary. D&M Tasting Notes
Today, there are strict set of legal standards in order for a spirit to be a true aquavit. The primary flavor has to be caraway and/or dill, produced using a rectified spirit and at least 37.5% alcohol by volume. In order to be considered a true Swedish aquavit, it must also contain fennel.
Spicy caraway and herbaceous rosemary dominate the nose followed on the palate by bright citrus and sweet, subtle fennel. Silky mouthfeel with a medium long finish that’s fresh and invigorating.
Characteristically earthy caraway (of course!), herbal rosemary and bright lemon peel are highlighted with lighter-handed touches of fennel and Seville orange, resulting in a clean-tasting, versatile spirit. Distillery Notes
