In the heart of the Nordic wilderness, where legends intertwine with nature, we bring you Askur Aquavit, a limited-edition that captures the spirit of the North and pays homage to the mythical roots of Askur Yggdrasil. Crafted in small batches, with an unwavering commitment to quality, Askur Aquavit is a rare gem, limited to only 1000 bottles a year.
A Mythical Heritage
Askur, named after the legendary tree Yggdrasil from Norse mythology, embodies the deep connection between the mystical and the natural. This ancient tree, often considered the cosmic axis of the world, serves as our inspiration, infusing Askur Aquavit with an aura of enchantment and mystique.
Aged to Perfection
Our commitment to excellence is showcased in the aging process of Askur Aquavit. This precious liquid is aged for an entire year in our 50-year-old Oloroso barrels, where it undergoes a transformative journey. The result is a nuanced and complex flavor profile that marries the rich history of Nordic spirits with the art of barrel aging.
Caraway and dill, two quintessential Nordic botanicals, are carefully selected to infuse Askur Aquavit with its distinctive character. These aromatic herbs provide a harmonious balance of earthy, herbal, and slightly sweet notes, elevating your tasting experience to new heights.
Each bottle of Askur Aquavit is a work of art in itself. To ensure its exclusivity and authenticity, every bottle is individually numbered, making it a collector’s item that stands as a testament to the limited nature of this exceptional Nordic drink.
Complex and pronounced on the nose with a great array of aromas ranging
from herbs, through reminiscences of zesty citrus, to nutty and savory notes from the sherry. Subtle caraway and dill supported by light and elegant sherry notes and a hint of fresh rye bread. This is definitely a very well thought through modern take on Linie Aquavit. It has a great deal of softness and
plush creamy texture with some freshness. The finish has a lovely touch of fine spicy wood and toasted nuts. It is beautifully composed and a real journey of the aromas and tastes throughout with a cool and refreshing palate.
