Ägräs Akvavit Profile
Ägräs Akvavit has a subtle taste of Finnish caraway and lightly anis, wild angelica and citrus peel as well as a round finish due to oak barrel maturation.
Ägräs Akvavit is distilled in the old ironworks village Fiskars Village in Finland, 88 km west of Helsinki.
The ingredients are first macerated for a set period of time to extract the fragrant oils, before the whole batch is distilled. After distillation the akvavit is matured in oak barrels for the round finish and the golden color.
Pair with fish dishes, as a schnapps at crayfish parties, Easter and Christmas tables or cure your salmon with it.
Remember never to freeze it down, because it loses the aromas from the barrel maturation.
