O.P. Anderson Björk Aquavit
O.P. Anderson Björk Aquavit combines the signature spices of O.P. Anderson - caraway, anise and fennel - with birch buds, birch bap, lemon zest and juniper berries making this a bit more subtle aquavit. It was Released in October 2018 for the re-opening of the National Museum of Sweden in Stockholm. Björk means birch in Swedish, which explains the name of this new, interesting aquavit.
All ingredients of this product are natural and organic.
Charcuterie and hard cheese is the perfect match for this clear simple aquavit. The O.P. Anderson Björk Aquavit is a bit lighter in flavour compared to the rest of the family making it the perfect match for inviting the Swedish subois to the table & really get that foresty birch feel.
Any dried aged and salty meat works like a charm here. Stay away from overly fatty alternatives. If you ever had a cut that you might have found too salty, pop a bottle of O.P. Björk and try again..
Parmesan, Gruyere or why not even a Comté? Delicate but powerful cheeses that can be easily ran over by both an acidic red wine or even by a light and crispy white wine. The combination of birch & lemon lifts a lighter side of the cheese - whereas the juniper and caraway takes care of the more fatty parts.
