Aquavit, but not as you know it.
Blinking Owl Distillery in California is all about provenance and local ingredients. They have accomplished the impressive goal of becoming a 100% California based product by working with their local grain community - all of their grain is certified organic from California farms, earning them the name of 'locavores'. This extends even to their California Aquavit inspired by their exploration of Scandinavia; every botanical is organic and locally sourced in California.
Blinking Owl set out to make an aquavit reminiscent of the great Aquavits of Scandinavia but with a California twist. After crafting their base spirit with organic wheat and malted barley, they macerate ten gorgeous organic botanicals (with a final steep in Caraway creating the natural golden hue). The primary flavors of Blinking Owl Aquavit are caraway, fresh dill, and hibiscus (the flower of Santa Ana, Blinking Owls hometown), with undertones of fennel and cardamom.
This is a complex aquavit that can be served chilled as a digestif or can add incredible flavors to a variety of cocktails.
We call this our Warm Weather Viking.
