The Old Ballard Liquor Co. is set to launch their latest liquor “Riktig Aquavit” at a release party tomorrow night at the Swedish Club (1920 Dexter Ave N). The event will kick off this Friday, November 22 at 5 p.m. and will include snacks, tastes and cocktails for attendees to enjoy.
Aquavit will appeal to those wanting to pay homage to Ballard’s Nordic roots, as it is a liquor that is a national drink in Scandanavian countries. It has a savory, caraway flavour and pairs well with wintertime food including smoked and pickled meats and seafood.
“OBLC’s Riktig Aquavit is traditionally flavored with caraway and spices, then aged on local alder wood for a regional Northwest twist,” write the folks at Old Ballard Liquor company.
Lexi’s Swedish Tilltugg will be on offer at the event and cocktails will be available for purchase through the cash bar. All are welcome to attend this special event.
