Newfoundland Distillery Company Aquavit
Our aquavit is the first spirit ever produced in Newfoundland that has been fully grown and legally distilled in the province. The ingredients come from coast to coast; the barley was grown and dried in Cormack, the honey is from Tuck’s Bee Better Farm in Grand Falls-Windsor, pristine spring water comes from Springdale, the peat and juniper from Clarke’s Beach and a dash of savoury from Mt. Scio in St John’s.
Aquavit is a Nordic spirit which is traditionally a grain based alcohol flavoured with local herbs and botanicals. We’ve made ours unique to Newfoundland and in some ways it’s a young ‘wannabe’ whisky; there’s a hint of smokiness, the campfire is there safely in the distance, a little bit of earthiness from the peat, herbal notes from the savoury and a comforting roundness from a small touch of carmelised honey.
This is a young smooth spirit, reminiscent of the aromas and purity of a walk through the Newfoundland wilderness.
