The event creator says
Got Akvavit? We sure do.

Join us for an evening celebrating this versatile Scandinavian spirit featuring Akvavits from distillers both local and abroad. We’ll have tastings tables and featured Akvavit cocktails at the bar. There will be a short discussion segment on the history of the spirit and each distillery will give a brief talk of how they got involved with Akvavit. Be sure to checkout out the traveling Akvavit exhibit and munch on food by Broder. The long and short of it - it’ll be a party.

We’ll have the following Akvavit experts:

-Lexi from Old Ballard Liquor Co. (Seattle)
-Tim Rickard from Rolling River Spirits (Portland)
-Jacob Grier representing Brennivin (Iceland) and Linie (Norway)
-House Spirits
-And possibly a few more!

Appetizers will be provided by Broder. This event is put on by Lagom Events at Broder Söder working with Scandinavian Heritage Foundation. Look for more events in this holiday season.

The event coincides with the new Skål! Scandinavian Spirits exhibit being featured at Nordia House November 3 through the end of December. This exhibit was curated but the Museum of Danish American in Iowa and is running at various Scandinavian venues in the States through 2018. Nordia House will feature the banner version of the exhibit (meaning mainly just the wall hangings), but from what I’ve seen it looks quite impressive. There will also be the accompanying book on hand for sale. See https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/danishmuseum/skal-scandinavian-spirits-exhibition-catalog for more information.
