The Akvavit is a distillate native to the Scandinavian countries and about 40 alcoholic degrees. Its production process is similar to that of Vodka, since potatoes or grains are used in its distillation and it is flavored with cumin, dill, fennel, coriander, grains of paradise and caraway. Its name means "water of life". The first samples of Akvavit appear in the year 1531, where we have indications that it was used as a medicinal drink. Currently the three countries that produce it, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, have declared Akvavit as their national drink, and it is tradition to drink a small glass in one gulp.
