It’s distilled from potatoes, and as characteristic of all aquavit, infused with caraway, along with dill, aniseed, sweet fennel and coriander, to give it a distinct taste. To make it even more distinguished, it’s aged in Oloroso sherry casks, imparting a golden color and sweet finish. Casks are matured on board cargo ships as they’re brought to and from the equator, allowing the heat and elements to impart the natural flavors crucial to the character of Linie. Their tagline: “Taste that really travels.”  Read less

Potato spirit flavored with herbs and spices that's been aged in Sherry casks. First nosings expose exotic and compelling aromas of bark, wood chips and fennel; further aeration releases heady scents of spice and honey. Palate entry of caraway-seeded rye bread; by midpalate, the flavor profile adds mild sweetness, soft spice and that persistent caraway seed. Aftertaste is moderately oily, off-dry and intensely herbal. One of the greatest spirits ever from Scandinavia. - Classic/Highest Recommendation

The sea voyage this akvavit takes makes for a smoother and richer product that's great on the rocks or with a twist of lime.
