    My family always had two bottles in the house. Green in the cabinet and Gold in the freezer. Green for illness, teething and uninvited guest. Gold for special events. I love the green the best since teething.

    Must be beyond freezing and served in frozen glasses. Delightful with pickled herring. So smooth with a slightly oily feel. It is strong so don't get carried away!

    Having lived in Sweden, I normally prefer Swedish to Danish, but this is my favourite Akvavit by a long way.

    I love this stuff. Stick it in the freezer and it becomes fragrant and flavoursome without the harsh alcohol bite that it's 45% strength implies - but don't be fooled! It's still there. A grown up drink. Hint - try with lemon cake! A revelation!

    You take a coffee mug, and put in a danish crown (danish coin). Now you pour some coffee. Once you've poured the coffee (just about half the cup), pour red aalborg until the coin is visible again. It's called Kaffepuns and it goes straight to your head

    Makes you proud to be from Aalborg!A classic that is always to be found at the dinner table during the christmas holidays. A few slices of rye bread topped with either makrel, herring bites, curry herring bites, egg, liver paste and bacon etc. a glass of beer and then a dram of "R?d Aalborg" straight from the freezer! Merry christmas :)

    Great drink especially served ice cold with fish and eel. Make some coffee and put some in,it will warm you up no end. Brilliant drink,try it you will love it.

    "Must be served ice cold" means at temperatures around -5?C (23?F)! Put it in the freezer. It should form ice condensation on the outside of the bottle when on the table.

    the most amazing drink to accomodate fish, especially eel, this drink as the effect of clearing the oils from the mouth. But must be served ice cold, to get the correct flavour, if served warm not much flavour at all
