Orkney Akvavit (70cl)
Orkney Spirits Limited (also known as Orkney Gin Company) are a multi award-winning family run business who hand craft their spirits using traditional methods, high quality hand-picked Orcadian and carefully sourced ingredients.
Akvavit (or aquavit) is a Scandinavian distilled spirit with predominant caraway. Many years ago, the Scottish Islands of Orkney belonged to Scandinavia. Orkney still has a unique dialect, traditions, folklore and a very special viking history. As a family of Orcadians, Orkney Spirits Limited have taken their Norse history and culture and put it into a gorgeous traditional bottle creating the first ever Scottish Akvavit - Orkney Akvavit.
Orkney Akvavit is distilled eight times - with caraway, citrus and many other botanicals creating a beautifully refreshing herbacious spirit with an unforgettable silky smooth finish. Traditionally Akvavit's were known as 'Scandinavian Gin' with a predominance of caraway rather than juniper. Orkney Spirits Limited have confidentally used their experience creating multi award-winning gins to produce this silky smooth multiple layered Akvavit certainly worth trying whether you're a gin lover or a viking at heart! We love it!
Although new to our range, Orkney Akvavit boasts a prestigious three star Great Taste Award and scored 92/100 in the International Wine and Spirits Competition.
Traditionally Akvavit was drank alone, however nowadays it is also enjoyed much how you would drink a gin - with tonic, or for those with a sweet tooth try ginger ale or lemonade. We have tried it with several mixers including Cola, and many cocktails including a Bloody Mary which tasted amazing. It's a truly unique, smooth and versatile spirit which goes with almost anything.
This spirit is made using hand picked and carefully sourced fresh and dried botanicals, this means the flavour may vary slightly in each batch. This variation is something we love about our spirits as it makes them even more special.
As it is 41.5%ABV, this spirit contains enough alcohol to not have a 'shelf life'. It's important the cork is pushed back on when you're putting it back on your shelf.
