Linie Aquavit

Linie Aquavit

On the dinner table tonight. Norwegian snaps. Skål. This bottle has been to Australia and then back to Norway before finding it's way to Tungelsta. The story behind this says that a schooner "Gymer" some 200 years ago, for some reason couldnt deliver the booze and when they came back to Norway it had aged well in the old sherry-casks and then someone came up with the new name. Linie means the Equator. And since then all bottles have to pass the equator twice before being sold
