Linie Aquavit sherry oak casks

Cask maturation for 16 months in sherry oak casks

LINIE originates from Norway and obtains its distinctive flavor through maturation in carefully selected oak casks, previously used for sherry. The casks undergo a meticulous selection process as the aquavit matures in them for a full 16 months, including four months at sea. It is the cask maturation and the long journey that develop the well-known taste of LINIE.

Extraordinarily smooth and well-balanced taste

The result is an extraordinarily smooth and well-balanced aquavit with prominent notes of caraway and star anise. The sherry remnants provide the aquavit with its golden color and subtle sweetness, while the cask itself imparts notes of wood and delicate hints of vanilla.
