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.
COLOUR: Light amber
NOSE: An intriguing combination of caraway, aniseed and orange peel is prominent in the aroma, followed by a delicate hint of vanilla.
PALATE: Oak combines with the caraway and aniseed to give great complexity, while old sherry notes give a rich, well-rounded flavour.
AFTERTASTE: A well-composed aftertaste of spices and sherry lingers for a few minutes.
