Aquavit

That ‘wee dram’ (as they say in Scotland) is once again returning to lunch tables in Denmark.

AQUAVIT RETURNS TO DENMARK

That ‘wee dram’ (as they say in Scotland) that we all know from lunch - and, on a good day, at breakfast too - is making a comeback in Denmark. We have done our utmost to create three beautiful aquavits, each with its own special taste, so you can always find one to suit both food and mood.  

Four aquavits, each with its own character 

 

Nyborg Akvavit Kommen

Nyborg Akvavit Kommen (40% alc.) is a classic aquavit with caraway and a sweet fragrance of orange peel, flowers and fruit 

The taste is classic through and through – just milder and friendlier. It has a wonderful sweetness - despite its 40% strength. You will also notice the caraway, which harmonises beautifully with the clear orange notes to elevate the taste. Notes of thyme lend depth to the aquavit. The aftertaste is spicy, pleasant and long-lasting.

Nyborg Caraway Aquavit is a perfect accompaniment to a traditional Danish lunch. 

 

Nyborg Akvavit Dild

Nyborg Akvavit Dild (38% alc.) has a fresh bouquet of fresh dill and citrus and just a touch of coconut and sea buckthorn.

The flavour is an exquisite interaction between marked notes of dill and coriander, followed by both sweetness and freshness. For an aquavit, there is a lovely harmony and mildness on the palate. The aftertaste is gentle - both fresh and full-bodied.

Perfect with an open faced prawn sandwich and fresh fish.

 

Nyborg Aquavit Dansk Eg

Nyborg Akvavit Dansk Eg (40% alc.) is a caraway aquavit stored on oak casks. It's features has a clear bouquet of cask notes, evoking Danish pastries with vanilla cream and toasted nuts. It also has a lovely aroma of orange peel, caraway and cloves.  
Ideal for a cheese board or a freshly-smoked mackerel.

 

Nyborg Akvavit Jul

At Christmas time, we can also offer Nyborg Akvavit Jul (42% alc.), which is a caraway aquavit that has been on a long journey before being bottled. The aquavit has been stored in used whisky casks since Christmas the year before, which have subsequently been used to store Ørbæk Symbiostout Jul in the cellars at Ørbæk Brewery. Before this the casks have been used to store whisky at Nyborg Destilleri and bourbon in the US.

Symbiostout Jul is a potent stout brewed with star anise, cinnamon stick, cloves, orange peel and coffee liqueur. The residual flavors from the Symbiostout, together with the whisky notes of the cask and the tannins of the oak, give flavor to Nyborg Akvavit Jul.

In addition to a distinct taste of caraway, the Christmas aquavit has notes of star anise, orange and caramel. A worthy and cozy partner for the Christmas lunch table, cheese table or spicy dishes.
