Created to commemorate a love of King Erik of Pommern, Ladskrona Akvavit personalizes a a time in history where herbs healed the pains of sailors and Vikings. Spirit of Hven has a long history of creating spirits that pay homage to the roots of Scandinavian culture, with Akvavit being a significant contribution to its culture. Created using neutral grain vodka, aged in American White oak, aging mixed with a maceration of dill, caraway, fennel, wormwood, elder and lime creates a traditional flavor combined with modern experimentation. In more ancient times, these herbs were known to fight nightmares on the high seas, Landskrona definitely gives justice to this set of beliefs.
Slowly macerating the herbs of traditional akvavit separately in one barrel allows Spirit of Hven to create a delicately refined flavor. Aromas of forest meadows takes the drinker to warmer times, while the lingering finish of fennel and aniseed meet to combine with the spicy flavors of wormwood. The herbaceous flavors are rounded out with a subtle acidity and dryness that are long lasting on the palette.
Landskrona akvavit is a complex spirit that will work with earthy flavors like ginger and lemon grass. Pair with a marinated salmon dish for an unique culinary experience.
