A stunning and unique Norwegian Aquevit aged in 3 casks
Set in the Norwegian mountains, this family owned distillery on Kimerud farm dates back to 1785.
Kimerud gin owes a lot to the norwegian geography, temperature and heritage. The cold climate in norway adds to the quality of Kimerud gin as it delays the growth of the herbs bringing a richness that contributes greatly to the final taste.
We also use botanicals that were popular in the viking era as a food and medicinal source. Learning from their teachings we produce a balanced yet powerful gin which pays tribute to the strength the vikings needed for their naval voyages.
Distillation of aquavit has more than 200 years tradition in Norway, the spirit is distilled from potatoes.
HÅVALDSEN is distilled mirroring the same method used on the best gins. This process of producing aquavit also includes distilling all the herbs at the same time and adding only clean mountain water post-distillation. This method integrates all the herbs into the product, for the highest quality palate and aroma.
Many of the botanicals that make up HÅVALDSEN are grown on Kimerud farm. We have dedicated many years of testing hundreds of botanicals to find the ideal balance in our Aquavit.
What makes Håvaldsen an innovator in the aquavit sector is that it has been stored in three different barrels: Sherry, Madeira and fine French oak. This is the first triple-cask aquavit made in Norway and most likely world-wide.
Most of the botanicals that make up Haveldsen Aquavit are grown on the farm in order to control the raw material from seed to finished gin. Each botanical is then stored in separated glasses, thereby bringing out the best of the assortment.
We use 22 botanicals, which include: juniper, lemon peel, ginger root, coriander, archangelica, walnut, mint, orange peel and rhodiola rosea. This final ingredient – rhodiola rosea, also known as golden root is rare to the fine gins of the world.
The spirit is distilled 5 times, using our new still sourced from world renowned family company of germany.
We have dedicated many years of testing to find the right balance of all 22 botanicals so that the only ingredient added post distillation is pure norwegian mountain water.
