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.
Aged in port casks for 12 months, which has resulted in Double Cask Madeira; a distinctive aquavit with an understated hint of spices. Double Cask Madeira has prominent notes of oak, vanilla, caramel and dried fruit.
Aquavit has an intense, round character and should be enjoyed as a liqueur; perfect for filled chocolates and rich cheeses.
