Proof66 Notes

Gamle Ode (pronounced "GAM-lay ODE") is a line of aquavit produced out of Minnesota. Aquavit is a Scandinavian spirit that is infused with herbs generally dominated by caraway, though it has many other distinctive styles. In this case, the carraway aquavit is heavily flavored with dill making for an unusual and herbal spirit traditionally served chilled. The aquavit is produced out of 45th Parallel Distillery in Minnesota, who tell us it is by far the most difficult spirit they make. 

The brand itself is owned and managed by Mike McCarron, a former ski instructor who was exposed to dill aquavit in Iceland years ago and finally realized a dream to launch in the spirit in Minnesota. The name "gamle ode" translates as "old ode" and is meant to honor the Scandinavians that McCarron visited.

Made from the 45th Parallel Distillery in Minnesota (themselves, a distillery of good repute) this was one of the more amazing moments of the night. Dill? Aquavit? Answer: yes!! Fearing a mouthfull of tartar sauce we instead got a nuanced, sipping spirit that fills the mouth without overpowering in one of the most exotic flavors we've ever tried. This should be the glad challenge of any mixologist worthy of the name.
