Åhus Akvavit

Swedish for “water of life”, akvavit dates back to the 15th century when it was created by monks as a medicine to cure physical and spiritual ailments. Today, akvavit synonymous with life, health and happiness and no Swedish celebration is complete without it. Our beloved Åhus Akvavit is the finest expression of the herb and citrus-based spirit, designed to bring that classic magic to curious homes across the globe.

To call Åhus home

Åhus is a tiny seaside village in southern Sweden. At the center of Åhus lies the Spiritchurch; the heart and soul of the town. Built in 1906, this four-story copper still distillery has been home to generations of passion and craftsmanship. It continues to operate today, for us and for you.

A curiously unique taste

If you’re new to akvavit, our clean-tasting spirit will feel all at once familiar and surprising. You’ll notice earthy caraway, herbal rosemary and bright lemon peel as well as lighter-handed touches of fennel and Seville orange. Expect a silky mouthfeel with a medium long finish that’s spicy and fresh.
