AMERICAN OAK RESERVE

Aged For 12 months in American Oak Casks

$44.99

$18.00 flat rate shipping on up to 4 bottles

750 ML | ALC. BY VOL. 53.5% | 107 PROOF

The same botanicals, pure organic base spirit, and distillation process as our flagship Taffel Style aged for a minimum of 12 months in previously used American oak, rye whiskey casks*. No additives, coloring, or chill-filtration needed or welcomed. This is aged aquavit in its most honest form and a rare offering within the category, especially given its cask strength proof.

Nose: Freshly cut spearmint leaves, floral top notes, hints of oak, and a touch of honey.

Palate: Heavy wafts of caraway hit the palate before the liquid even touches the tongue. Followed by mild citrus then lingering wildflower honey. Any dry character of the oak is subtle yet adds a nice balance to the sweetness that dominates.

Finish: Easy going down leaving a light honey, vanilla, citrus, and floral taste lingering until the next sip.

Overall: A full-bodied harmony of evolved botanical aromas and pronounced caraway spice with a vanilla-laced, sweet citrus finish.

Neat serve: Lightly chilled.

For cocktails: Makes a great substitution in cocktails that call for aged spirits.

Pairings: Aged cheeses, roast pork, and smoked or cured meats.

*Every batch is a blend of 3-5 casks that match our desired flavor profile and have aged between 12 and 24 months. On occasion, superlative experimental and rare cask bottlings that have aged over 2 years will be offered in extremely limited supply as part of the “KURIOSA KOLLEKTION”.

LIMITED EDITION “PINK AQUAVIT”

With Strawberry, Rhubarb, Hibiscus, and Damask Rose

$38.99

$18.00 flat rate shipping on up to 4 bottles

750 ML | ALC. BY VOL. 38% | 76 PROOF

Crafted in the Scandinavian “snaps” tradition known as kryddersnaps or “spice-schnapps”, we gathered fresh strawberries and zesty rhubarb directly from Michigan farms and soaked them in our Award-winning “original taffel-style” Aquavit for 45 days to preserve the peak flavor of Summer. Just before bottling the spirit was finished with hibiscus flowers and a meticulous vapor-distillation of Damask rose petals for a vibrant hue and delicate balance. Bottled at 38% alcohol by volume, Distiller Robyn Cleveland says, “The resulting spirit bursts with fresh strawberry on the nose, citrus fruit and caraway spice throughout, and plays up the floral notes of the original for an entirely new experience, but one that is quintessentially “NORDEN”. It really captures the essence of Michigan Summer at its peak”.

Best served chilled (neat).

Suggested mixer: soda or Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic.

HEIRLOOM GARDEN DILL

Inspired by Scandinavian Traditions Spanning Centuries

$38.99

$18.00 flat rate shipping on up to 4 bottles

750 ML | ALC. BY VOL. 39% | 78 PROOF

Inspired by Scandinavian traditions spanning centuries, our newest addition, HEIRLOOM GARDEN DILL is centered around a mammoth dill variety we brought over from Denmark and have been growing for many years. The stalks, harvested just twice each Summer, are vapor-distilled within hours, then blended into a single distillation of dill seeds, whole garden botanicals, and pure spirit from Midwest-grown organic corn.
Supporting botanicals were selected to thrive in the verdant landscape surrounding the distillery and include: Nasturtium flower, Marigold, Yarrow, Angelica root, Coriander, Fennel, and Lovage.
The finished spirit is worthy of sipping alongside classic Nordic fare and contemporary culinary delicacies while also standing out as an ingredient destined to enliven cocktails with its electrically fresh, balanced flavor.

Tasting notes: Loads of fresh dill, bright citrus, sweet spearmint, peppery floral undertones, and savory herbs. The finish is delicate and long with a hint of natural sweetness from the Angelica and coriander.

Whole botanicals only. No extracts, sweeteners, or other additives. Try it from the freezer, in a Bloody Mary or dirty martini!

Suggested food pairings: Cured salmon, shellfish, grilled vegetables, and milder cheeses.
