Akavavit

[(/ˈɑːkwəviːt, -və-/; also akevitt in Norwegian)] noun

The definition of Akavavit

'Akavavit is a distilled spirit that is principally produced in Scandinavia, where it has been produced since the 15th century.'

Akvavit or aquavit (/ˈɑːkwəviːt, -və-/; also akevitt in Norwegian) is a distilled spirit that is principally produced in Scandinavia, where it has been produced since the 15th century. Akvavit is distilled from grain and potatoes, and is flavoured with a variety of herbs. It is also popular in Germany.

Akvavit gets its distinctive flavour from spices and herbs, and the dominant flavour must (according to the European Union) come from a distillate of caraway and/or dill seed. It typically contains 40% alcohol by volume or 80 proof (U.S.) The EU has established a minimum of 37.5% ABV for akvavit to be named as such.
