In 1780, Catharine Lysholm built the vessel, Trondheims Prove in cooperation with her tradesman brother. The ship sailed to the East Indies in 1807 loaded with potato spirit in casks and other merchandise. Five casks remained unsold and returned on the ship to Norway in 1807. Much to the owners and surprise and pleasure, the potato spirit had turned into a smooth and pleasant Aquavit after the long voyage at sea in cask.
The combination of caraway/aniseed is prominent in the aroma of Lysholm Linie. Old sherry notes give a rich, rounded flavour, with aniseed, caraway and oak giving complexity.
With its dry style and subdued, neutral taste, Lysholm Linie is ideal for accompanying smoked salmon, marinated fish and other dishes having a mild flavour. Lysholm Linie should be served at room temperature.
