Eriks Akvavit: A Royal Tribute
Eriks Akvavit pays homage to the illustrious Swedish King Erik of Pomerania. Revered as the monarch of the Nordic realms, Erik’s grandeur and penchant for lavish festivities mirror the bold and ambitious spirit of a master distiller.

The palate echoes the aromatic dance, delivering a spicy fusion with a pronounced cumin kick.
Knuts Akvavit: Dansk-Inspired Elegance
Positioned between Sweden and Denmark, Spirit of Hven captures the essence of Danish style with Knuts Akvavit. A tribute to King Knut Lavard, this aquavit echoes the heritage of Knutsgillena, networks that supported families in times of need. Combining distillates and macerates of dill, cumin, and fennel, Knuts Akvavit delights with a spicy aroma, featuring hints of citrus and a prominent dill character. The palate resonates with a harmonious blend of dill, citrus, and fennel, underscored by the distinctive flavor of dill.
Landskrona Akvavit: A Symphony of South Scandinavian Tones
Landskrona Akvavit stands as a modern, fresh, and aromatic spirit with rich South Scandinavian notes. Crafted with artisanal expertise, this aquavit is a testament to the distillery’s commitment to local produce. From elderflower and citrus aromas to mature kummin and a floral meadow, Landskrona Akvavit captivates the senses. The rounded yet distinct taste, enhanced by oak barrel aging, offers a balanced interplay of acidity, bitterness, and a gentle warmth that concludes with a dry finish.
