The Scandinavian Kitchen

Aquavit, the Danish or Norwegian cousin of the Vodka, is sometimes made of potato's, but also from grain (rye or barley). Cummin seed, Fennel, aniseed make the different tastes. Some of the Aquavit's ripen in oak wood barrels and there is one, namely de linie awuavit (distilled by Loiten) which sails around the world and passes the equator twice before it will be bottled. This Aquavit is much darker and more aromatic than it's normal brothers.

Aquavit is consumed neat or with ice with smoked salmon and other scandinavian dishes. In a cocktail it is a good replacement for Vodka, creating a wonderful, unique, taste.
