Released in January 2016, This Norwegian aquavit was created by Master blender Ivan Abrahamsen using 11 different botanicals, including Norwegian caraway, star anise, coriander, bitter orange peels and ginger.

Lysholm No.52 is named in tribute to Jørgen B. Lysholm, a Norwegian who after studying chemistry in Berlin returned to Norway in 1820 to establish his own distillery and create the foundation for today’s Norwegian aquavits. The recipe selected for the final product was the 52nd to be tried during the product’s developed, hence the name No52.

The brand owners suggest enjoying Lysholm No.52 served tall over ice with tonic water (1 part Lysholm No.52 to 2 parts tonic) and garnishing with a slice of lemon or cucumber.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 26/01/2016


Clear, transparent.


Pungent caraway and coriander with lemon zest and an almost peppermint freshness.


Black pepper spice with distinctive kümmel-like caraway flavours and faint notes of citrus and ginger.


Spicy finish with black pepper competing with fading caraway.


Clean and fresh. Invigorating black pepper spice and caraway with citrus, ginger and star anise adding complexity.
