What is Cask Aquavit?
Cask Aquavit is Aquavit stored in casks. In order to be named “norwegian aquavit” the aquavit must have been stored for at least 6 months on oak casks (casks smaller than 1000 l. For larger casks the storage must be 1 year)
We are storing our casks in NATO bunkers close to the arctic sea. The whole area around the distillery was an old coastal fort, established under second world war, by the germans.

BIVROST® CASK AQUAVIT
MYTHOLOGY: In the old mythology, the Vikings named the northern lights Bivrost. It was seen as a magical bridge from the homeworld of humans, in the world called Midgard, to the realms of the Norse Gods of Asgard.
CREATION: Bivrost® Cask Aquavit is handcrafted under the glow of the Northern Lights, at the foot of the majestic Lyngen Alps. Made with a traditional potato base spirit and classic herbs and spices then mixed with glacial meltwater from the Lyngen Alps this is a fusion of modern distilling technology and tradition. This handcrafted Aquavit is stored in carefully selected sherry casks and allowed to mature in our extensive underground storage vaults which were previously part of a network of tunnels in a Cold War NATO base.
AROMA: Bivrost® Cask Aquavit is a delicate and sophisticated medium-to-full body aquavit , smooth, luscious, rich with hints of dried fruits and citrus with a distinct warming spicy finish.
