In 1780 Catharina Lysholm built the vessel, ‘Trondheims Prøve’, 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 surprise and pleasure, the potato spirit had turned into a smooth and pleasant aquavit after the long voyage at sea in cask. Following the voyage, Linie Aquavit was born, and the secret behind its unique style and quality was a guarded secret in the Lysholm family for many years.
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.
