Mapping the voyage

From the tranquil fjords of Norway, each bottle of LINIE Aquavit begins a remarkable journey across the globe. Setting sail across the vast Atlantic, our precious casks experience the diverse cultures and climates of vibrant ports along their route. The voyage then takes a turn towards the equator, twice crossing this line of nautical lore to enter the realm of the Southern Hemisphere.

Gracefully, our vessels glide through the waters near sun-drenched coasts, visiting bustling cities and serene harbors that add their chapters to our story, as the aquavit continues to mature with each nautical mile.

As the ship steers through the vast expanses of the Pacific and into the cultural tapestry of Asia, each part of the journey contributes to the depth and character of the aquavit. The constant motion of the ocean and the varied climates lend their invisible touch to the aging spirit.

With the ship turning homeward, the aquavit has by now absorbed a world of flavor — a truly global spirit, ready to be savored by those who appreciate a journey as rich and deep as the aquavit itself.

Why the Equatorial crossing matters

The Equator is more than just a line on the map — it's a climatic divider that exposes our aquavit to the most extreme conditions, crucial for its unique aging process. During its sea voyage, the wooden sherry casks expand and contract, allowing the aquavit to absorb the rich, spicy essences that define its complex flavor profile.
