Old Opland Aquavit celebrates 150 years of a limited edition

The premium Norwegian Aquavit Gammel Opland has been made since 1872. To celebrate its 150th anniversary, a limited-edition anniversary edition is now being launched. Opland Jubilee is made from a mixture of aquavits that have been stored in sherry casks for at least ten years.

Gammel Opland Aquavit is a Norwegian cultural heritage that has been distilled, seasoned and stored in sherry barrels according to the same secret recipe for 150 years. To celebrate the tradition, the Anniversary Edition was released that, just like the original, is spiced with cumin, anise, fennel, coriander and grains of heaven. The difference lies in the extra-long barrel capacity which gives Aquavit a more rounded, richer, and complex texture with a hint of dried fruit and raisins.

– Life aficionados often rate Gammel Opland as the world’s best aquavit thanks to the balanced spice and ripeness on its sherry casks. With Opland Jubilee, we’ve taken barrel warehousing to a whole new level, says Malin Ulas, product manager at Anora. The result is an exclusive aquavit that is better enjoyed in silence after a meal than a lavender-shaped glass.

The Opland Jubileum’s aqua water consists of both oloroso and PX barrels, giving a dark golden color. The rich and complex scent contains vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate and subtle spices. The taste is long, smooth and complex with clear hues of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate and raisins. From the spices come round shades of cumin, anise, licorice and warm citruses.

The Opland Jubiluem was released in a limited edition of 500 bottles in the Systembolaget order assortment 9 May and costs 540 SEK. Akvaviten is also being served exclusively at Restaurant Ulla Winbladh in Stockholm from Norwegian National Day 17 May.
