You can’t get more clas­si­cally Nordic than ak­vavit, a liquor pro­duced in Scan­di­navia since the 15th cen­tury. In­trigued by the sim­i­lar­i­ties in tast­ing notes be­tween ak­vavit and gin, The Nordic Spir­its Lab – a col­lab­o­ra­tive plat­form that aims to rein­vent drink­ing ex­pe­ri­ences – has de­vel­oped NSL Nordic x Gin (Skr329, RM159). In­fused with key botan­i­cals com­mon to both spir­its, such as ju­niper and an­gel­ica, the twist to this small-batch dis­tilled gin comes in the form of its ak­vavit flavour el­e­ments, car­away and dill.
