Akvavit, translated from Latin to mean 'water of life', is a Scandinavian drink distilled from potatoes and grains and flavoured with herbs. It is the national drink of Denmark and is enjoyed as a celebration drink, sipped from a shot glass. Its life began hundreds of years ago in the rural parts of central and northern Europe, and Aalborg's base recipe has remained unchanged for 150 years.
This particular version of the drink is made in Denmark by the Aalborg distillery, and whilst caraway seeds are typically used to create the spirit's dominant flavour, dill is used in this version. The dill gives the Akvavit a delicious herby and earthy flavour with hints of sweetness and citrus.
