It’s for the digestion, promise *hiccup*

It’s just a pure vodka spiced with for example aniseed, wormwood or cummin etc, flavour is very local and usually very bitter. . Very traditional Swedish, we call it “snapps” so it’s a shot of vodka.

For the record: I grew up in Calgary and lived there until my early-twenties. I also lived in Norway for three years. I am plenty familiar with what it is to be cold.

I don't doubt it, just a friendly jab.

I, for one, quite enjoy Aquavit.

At least this one from Okanagan Spirits (maybe they've made something more palatable than authentic?)

Is that because it is not actually Aquavit?
