WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
LINIE Aquavit has been matured at sea since 1805, resulting in the unique and familiar style we recognise today.
Follow in LINIE’s footsteps, and create a cocktail, inspired by one of the stops on LINIE's route.
You will present your cocktail to the jury and explain the concept. You may want to draw a parallel between the cocktail and your own life journey.
Here are the countries on LINIE AQUAVIT's route:
NORWAY, GERMANY, BELGIUM, ENGLAND, USA, PANAMA, NEW ZEALAND,
AUSTRALIA, SINGAPORE, CHINA, KOREA, JAPAN and MEXICO.
