Aquavit

Aquavit is a spirits category encompassing many different styles of drink. Aquavit is most commonly distilled from grain or potatoes, though it can be made from almost any type of alcohol. Aquavit is typically flavoured with herbs and spices, which give it a characteristic flavour that can vary depending on the distiller. Aquavit is commonly enjoyed as an aperitif or digestif and is also often used in cocktails.

Aquavit has a long history, dating back to the 15th century. Aquavit was originally distilled in Scandinavia, and the name aquavit comes from the Latin aqua vitae, meaning "water of life." Aquavit was traditionally used as a medicinal liquor and was thought to have curative powers. Aquavit began to be distilled in Germany in the 16th century and soon became popular throughout Europe.

By EU law, the main flavouring should be either caraway or dill. Aquavit (or akvavit) is often consumed during a formal meeting, and it is usually drunk quickly from a small shot glass. In Norway, most aquavit is aged in oak casks, and the result is complex and should be served in a tulip glass to enhance the flavour.
