Aquavit is a distilled liquor, like vodka, but aquavit’s distinctive aromas and seasonings come from a blend of herbal essences of fennel, caraway, and anise, which are the classic aquavit spices.

O.P. Anderson “Original” Aquavit is made from Swedish wheat and distilled with spices; in addition, the finished distillate rests in oak barrels for six months in order to mellow. Eminently versatile, at 40% alcohol O.P. Anderson Aquavit may be enjoyed neat and chilled, paired with smoked fish and other Nordic cuisine, as a savoury alternative in classic cocktails such the Bloody Mary and Last Word, or as a base for new drink creations.

Thanks to the distillery’s exceptional quality standards, O.P. Anderson Aquavit has won numerous awards as well as several gold medals in the prestigious International Wine and Spirits Competition.

O.P. Anderson “Original” Aquavit is the best-selling aquavit in Sweden and, today, the world over it is traditionally served as an aperitif, while bartenders and consumers are increasingly enjoying its herbal flavourings in all types of innovative drinks.

In Swedish history, aquavit – in Latin, aqua vitae, means the water of life – is first referenced in an early 16th century letter. O.P. Anderson’s Aquavit is the oldest aquavit of Sweden. Carl August Anderson launched it in 1891 in honour of his father, O.P. Anderson, who was a ship owner, proprietor of a liquor factory, and a member of the Göteborg City Council.

For centuries, aquavit has been the quintessential spirit of celebration and song in Scandinavian culture. In Sweden, before drinking a small shot of aquavit
(a snaps), tradition calls for a vigorous song that glorifies the delicacy of the drink (a snapsvisa). Drinking songs are short and easy to learn, aiming for everyone around the table to join in.

Across Sweden, Norway and Finland as well as parts of Northern Europe, aquavit is the traditional spirit for festive gatherings, dinners, weddings and informal get-togethers.
