Cask Matured 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 dedicated himself to sourcing the best ingredients and refining his distillation techniques, leading to the launch of Norden’s flagship ‘Taffel Style Aquavit’ in 2017. With an emphasis on organic and wild crafted (foraged) ingredients and a base distilled from organic corn grown in the midwestern United States, Norden’s lineup continues to grow, contributing both to the rich cocktailing scene of nearby Detroit, Michigan, and the country at large.

Tasting Notes

The first widely available line extension from Norden Spirits begins with Norden’s Original Taffel (or table) Style Aquavit that is aged exclusively in Kentucky rye barrels. Since future releases may see variations in cask type and length of aging, each bottle displays a release number alongside cask & aging details. This first release exhibits freshly cut mint leaf and clover honey on the nose introducing a palate big in caraway that is complemented by light citrus and a delicate sweetness imparted by the oak. Honey and floral notes linger in this gentle evolution of the original Norden expression. 53.5% ABV, no color added and non-chill filtered.
