Born from coincidence

LINIE is the oldest aquavit brand in the world. It all started back in 1805, when the Norwegian trade family, Lysholm, shipped potato aquavit to the East Indies. Here people were totally uninterested in buying it, so the aquavit was sailed back to Norway. On its arrival in 1807, it was discovered that the sea voyage had vastly improved the taste.

Since that day, every drop of LINIE has been sent on a sea journey across the world to mature, crossing the Equator twice.

Grown, produced and

distilled up North

LINIE Aquavit has been produced in Norway using the same recipe since 1821. It’s distilled from potatoes and then placed in a pot still with a blend of herbs and spices to develop into a fine clear aquavit.

After its distillation, LINIE Aquavit is placed in sherry oak casks, previously used to mature sherry. The remains of the sherry provide the aquavit with a golden colour and subtle sweetness, whereas the oak adds

hints of vanilla and wood.

Nordic spices for
more flavour
The light days and cold nights of the Nordic summer produce herbs and spices with extra flavour, contributing to LINIE’s characteristic taste. Caraway is one of the aquavit’s most important spices.

Sailing for

unparalleled smoothness

Every cask of LINIE is sailed across the globe as deck cargo on a 4 months’ journey, crossing the Equator twice.

It's the constant rolling and changing temperature and humidity during the journey, which gives LINIE its unparalleled smoothness, and perfectly balances the spices and cask aromas.
Since 1805 LINIE aquavit has been matured at sea
