Product of: Denmark
This crystal-clear Akvavit, the best-selling of the Aalborg range, is flavoured with caraway. The Danish poet Jørgen Vibe once wrote, ‘Aalborg Taffel lights the fires of delight. And keeps our spirits burning bright.’ ‘Taffel’, romantically enough, translates literally as ‘table’.
