Spirit of Hven's Aquavit uses its vodka as a starting point. It is redistilled along with caraway, lemon and orange peel, St John's wort and rhubarb and aged in wood. Each batch is made up of 30 casks, of which a third each is aged for two, four and six years.

Spirit of Hven Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: A predominant caraway note, with citrus in the background.

    Palate: Spicy, with caraway, vanilla, cinnamon and a hint of liquorice, backed up by zesty citrus notes of oranges and lemons.

    Finish: Refreshing with citrus notes overtaking the spiciness.

    Comment: An excellent take on Scandinavia's national schnapps, this is lighter in body than other aquavit's I've tried, but richer in intensity and complexity. I tried this with pickled (matjes) herring and they complemented each other perfectly.

    The best Aquavit I have tried! So complex and rich. Generous in orange zest and an underlying mix of ''woody spices'' such as clove and nutmeg. All of this appearing shortly after a more straight forward caraway and grassy nose. An experience highly recommended!
