LINIE Double Cask Port
LINIE Double Cask Port is created more than 200 years after the original and what differentiates it from its predecessor, is its second maturation process. After completing the traditional maturation for 4 months at sea and 12 months in storage, the aquavit is aged for another 12 months in carefully selected Port casks.
Double cask for unparalleled smoothness
The prolonged maturation of LINIE Double Cask Port creates an additional smoothness. It also adds more complexity and and extra taste dimension to the LINIE Original’s notes of caraway and star anise, with hints of dried fruit and sweet vanilla.
Nordic spices for a distinctive flavor
The bright days and cold nights of the Nordic summer produce herbs and spices with extra flavor, contributing to the aquavit’s characteristic taste. Caraway is the lead botanical and together with star anise, these are two most important spices of LINIE Aquavit.
