2024-09-29 – The Rise of Aquavit in the U.S.



September 29 (11:00-12:00 pm CT) 


Emily Vikre 


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


For a long time, the only aquavit an American could get was imported from either Denmark, Norway, or Sweden. In the mid 2000s, there was a surge of American distillers who began making the classic Scandinavian spirit for the American market. With this new batch of distillers came a new outlook of how aquavit could be enjoyed. No longer limited to drinking it straight with traditional meals, bartenders and spirit enthusiasts began playing with the use of aquavit in cocktails.

Join co-founder and CEO of Vikre Distillery, Emily Vikre, as she shares the story of aquavit's rise in popularity, as well the story of Vikre Distillery’s founding and its early life making a name for itself in the world of spirits.



Students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.
