"2023 is going to be the year of aquavit" according to an article published by The Verge in which notable chefs, wine makers and mixologists are asked what they believe will take the food and drink industry by storm in 2023.
In the article Mariella Franciosi, Beverage Manager at Michelin starred London restaurant, Aquavit shares her thoughts on the potential of aquavit as a spirits category.
"I believe 2023 is going to be the year of aquavit, and I’m not just saying that! In the same way Mezcal captivated customers in 2022, I think aquavit is set to do so next. Aquavit is a Scandinavian produced spirit distilled from grain or potatoes that is flavoured with a variety of herbs and botanicals; it’s very similar to gin and works beautifully when paired with tonics. Given the boom gin has experienced in recent years, I expect aquavit to be as well received in the coming months."
We agree 100%. In fact, we could have written it ourselves!
