Svöl Aquavit Danish Style
Aquavit is a century's old spirit of Scandinavian origin that's still relatively unknown in the US.
Drifter Spirits has set out to change that with the introduction of Svöl, a line of Aquavits crafted with top-quality ingredients.
This expression has a savory caraway-forward flavor that is the signature of the Danish style, with notes of citrus and pine. This unique spirit will delight anyone who enjoys botanically driven spirits like gin or crafting savory cocktails.
750ml & 80 Proof
It starts with a mild floral aroma and fresh citrus element. Then a complex, pine- and caraway-forward flavor follows through to the finish.
Ways to Enjoy
Classic: Use aquavit instead of vodka or gin for a delicious, savory martini
Unexpected: put a Scandinavian spin on the Southside

Re-distilled from an infusion of seven different botanicals in a proprietary blend of neutral corn and full-grain corn, barley and rye spirits. Caraway from Finland is the lead flavor, rounded out by several other botanicals from around the world including Icelandic angelica root and pine bark from the USA.
This modern take on aquavit is the product of a collaboration between the culinary and the spirits world. The botanicals used in every Svöl Aquavit are selected and sourced from around the world by Nordic cuisine expert and chef Gunnar Gíslason, owner of the Michelin-starred Dill Restaurant in Reykjavik. The distillation and botanical extraction techniques were developed in partnership with Allen Katz at New York Distilling Co in Brooklyn, NY, where Svöl is made on a 1000L copper still.
A subtly spicy yet balanced spirit that's perfect in savory cocktails or in place of your favorite gin.
Drifter Spirits is on a mission to help spirits enthusiasts in the US get to know and love fascinating spirits from all over the world. They started with Avuá Cachaça and have now added Svöl to the mix.

Just like the description says, this brings intense caraway flavor! It is extremely caraway forward, then resolves into pine and various floral, botanical notes, there is no medicinal flavor at all here like with some other spirits. This has a very complex flavor profile, but it's very clean with no "off" notes at all, this is a really quality spirit that I might even say is under-priced for what it brings. The blue glass bottle is very cool too! The flavors are very unusual to me so I'm still figuring out how to best use it. I love caraway so right now I'm just sipping it and listening to Danheim and imagining viking things...Was this helpful?
