Through the centuries, aquavit production has developed into a modern industry, though many of the products have a history
stretching back to the early 19th century
Aquavit is regarded as the national spirit of Norway. Also, it is only in Norway aquavit is matured in old sherry casks,
a similar process to that of cognac and whisky.
The wines and spirit division at Arcus conducts all the production of Norwegian produced spirits, such as aquavit, vodka,
gin, liqueurs and bitters.
The 180 tanks in the wine cellar have a capacity of about 4 million litres of wine. We utilise a comprehensive quality control
system so that all products arriving at our plant are checked at many stages in the process.
Join us on a tour of our production facilities which will give you a brief introduction to some of our brands, and follow
the production processes where aquavits and other spirits are aged in oak casks and huge barrels
