A SCANDINAVIAN CLASSIC
MADE IN MICHIGAN

Meaning “water of life,” Aquavit is a staple of Scandinavian culture, often found at festive gatherings.

Embracing time-honored methods, our distillers are able to craft an Aquavit that’s made in Michigan, yet remains true to its Northern European roots.

We invite you to enjoy its notable herbs and spices in the company of friends and family – the way it’s been enjoyed for centuries!
