Pronounced ‘LINN-yuh’, this Norwegian aquavit (AH-keh-veet) is distilled from potato and flavoured with caraway other herbs and spices including dill, fennel, anise and coriander before undergoing a very unusual maturation process.

Linie is distilled from potatoes and flavoured with caraway, dill, anise, fennel, coriander and numerous other herbs and spices. The aquavit is placed in oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks on a ship in bound for Australia, during the course of its voyage it twice crosses the equator (linie is Norwegian for line) before arriving back in Oslo. The changes in temperature and the rolling motion of the ship aid the maturation effect of the oak casks and so help give this spirit its distinctive character. The name of the ship from the Wilh. Wilhelmsen company in which the barrel that a particular bottle of Aquavit was matured is printed on the reverse of the front label with the two crossing dates.
