Buy Linie Aquavit
Linie has a rich, smooth profile with notes of aniseed and caraway. Matured in old sherry casks, it also has slight notes of oak and a kiss of sherry, adding complexity.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - Medium pungent aromas of chamomile, cinnamon and caraway. Incredibly light and crisp on the palate, with similar herb and spice flavors with a saline backbone. Smooth in texture it finishes dry, spicy and clean. Chairman’s Trophy
Light amber color, very bright and clear. Subtle aromas of orange peel are deep and clean, with undertones of dried fruit. In the mouth it is dry and savory, suede in texture with with slight sweet spice, nutmeg, caraway, and dried orange peel. Exceptionally balanced and smooth. (Apr 2014)

Linie is a potato based spirits distilled with multiple botanicals: Carraway is the most important flavor along with dill, anise seed, sweet fennel and coriander.

Linie (pronounced “LINN-yuh”) is Norwegian for “line,” refers to the Equator because it ships from Norway, across the equator, to Australia, and back in oak sherry casks (trip usually lasts abt 5 months). Multiple changes in temperature and humidity, constant movement and salty sea air serves to mellow the spirit. Further 12-14 months barrel maturation & it’s ready to drink!

The concept of linie aquavit happened by accident in the 1800s. Jørgen Lysholm owned a distillery in Trondheim, Norway. His mother and uncle sent a batch of aquavit to Asia on a large sailing ship, hoping to market it there. It didn’t sell, however, and 5 barrels were shipped back to Trondheim. When the aquavit arrived back in Norway, Lysholm noticed it had a richer flavor. At this time, Norway was shipping dried cod around the world. Lysholm began loading barrels of aquavit onto freighters that carried the cod, and retrieving them at the end of a long round trip. Look through the bottle from the back-- find details of voyage.

Food pairing
LINIE & FOOD: Linie is the natural companion to traditional, Scandinavian dishes, including salted, smoked or cured meats, pickled or dried food, smoked salmon, various seafood as well as with other Nordic specialities. It is particularly suited to pork and other rich, fatty dishes.

LINIE - THE DIGESTIF: For centuries, Linie's ability to aid digestion has been welcomed all over the world. The spices and herbs in Linie Aquavit have the same effects on digestion today as they had in the old days, when Linie actually was drunk solely for its medical properties.

LINIE & BEER: Traditionally, Linie Aquavit is drunk as a chaser with beer. While some knock it back in one go, many prefer to enjoy it in small sips. Linie should be drunk after the beer, not vice-versa, so its delicate taste lingers in the mouth. Most Norwegians find the subtle flavor of Linie is best enjoyed when served at room temperature or slightly chilled
