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.
Matured for 12 months in old sherry barrels in Norway. For the completion in taste over another 4 months on board of a freighter, which crosses the equator (Norwegian: Line) twice. After completing the traditional LINIE maturation at sea, it is given an extra six months of ageing in carefully selected Port casks.
Tasting notes: Caraway and anise notes accompanied by sweetish vanilla and oak. Starts with caraway, anise and orange peels followed by soft wood notes, vanilla, caramel and dried fruits. Smooth and silky texture.
Enjoy on its own as a sipping aquavit, or as a match for a rich, delicious dessert and a variety of cheeses.
