The water of life

Aquavit "Mulberry Rose" by Copenhagen Distillery Aquavit "Mulberry Rose" by Copenhagen Distillery

Not that we want to encourage excessive alcohol consumption, but a little alcohol can be an adventure. Particularly when that alcohol is used to create something known as “the water of life”. This aquavit from Copenhagen Distillery is made of clear alcohol flavoured with a distillate of dill seeds and/or caraway and is matured in a cask. As the name suggests, the latest flavour, “Mulberry Rose”, contains mulberry and rose and is inspired by Danish gardens. It is delicious with a lot of ice, your tonic of choice and a large sprig of mint. Neat, it is only for the hardened alcohol lover – although the pretty colour of course suggests otherwise.
