Aquavit, Norden Spirits
After a trip to Denmark resulted in his first taste of Aquavit, Norden’s founder, Robyn Cleveland, never forgot the flavors he experienced in distillates abroad. Driven by a respect for aquavit’s rich history, a desire for the ideal mixing spirit, and a dedication to producing locally, Robyn’s approach to distillation was refined over time as he sourced the best ingredients, eventually leading in 2017 to Norden Aquavit’s carefully considered recipe. With an emphasis on organic and wild crafted (foraged) ingredients, Norden Aquavit’s base is distilled from organic corn grown in the midwestern United States and produced in the increasingly vibrant craft distillation scene of Detroit, Michigan.

Norden Aquavit paints a lush, botanical canvas by embracing both Caraway and Dill in addition to Clementine, Coriander, Angelica, Orris, Juniper, Clary Sage, Sumac, and Anise, for a rounded ten botanicals that create much more than the sum of their parts. These ingredients are distilled once in a copper pot still and bottled at 45% ABV. Though there’s no mistake that this spirit reflects the inherently savory nature of the aquavit category, its bright citrus evokes a gin-like quality that leads to cocktail mixing with tremendous flexibility.
