Håvaldsen Triple Cask 5 Year 40,3%
Håvaldsen Triple Cask Aquavit is made from potatoe spirit, distilled in the same method used on the best gin’s.
By distilling all the herbs at the same time and just adding clean mountains water after the distillation. The herbs are well integrated into the end product and get the highest quality. Håvaldsen is distilled in the same way as a «London Dry Gin».
Håvaldsen has been stored in three different barrels for a minimum of 9 months in total, Sherry, Madeira and fine French oak. This is the first triple-cask aquavit made in Norway and most likely worldwide.
Håvaldsen won an ISC ( International Spirit Competition ) Silver medal in 2017 which is an achievement we’re proud of.
In 2018, we won a big blind taste test competition at Vinmonopolet (The norwegian government-owned beverage retailer), where we were voted the best aquavit in Norway.
Experience a profound aftertaste from botanicals including: Carvi, Coriander, Angelica, Mint, Ginger Root, Orange and Lemon peel.
This triple cask aquavit is a toast to the Master Distiller’s grandfather Herold Håvaldsen, a miner in the Norwegian mountains. During WW2 he worked worked on ships before he was taken as a prisoner of war for his service as a freedom fighter. We honour the stories of fellow miners and fallen heroes with this complex Norwegian Aquavit.
Håvaldsen is recommended as an avec/digestif per the finest dark spirits. Also perfect as main ingredient in new trendy cocktails.
