Introducing Batch 023: Aquavit!
Our version of this Scandinavian classic utilizes our unaged rye malt whiskey base and distills it a second time with caraway, star anise, dill seed, and a variety of other aromatic botanicals. After distillation, the spirit is finished in both Chattanooga Whiskey Rye Malt Whiskey casks and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. The result is a sweet and spicy dram that we recommend drinking similarly to gin or as post-meal digestif. Skål!
