About Batch 22 Classic Gold New American Aquavit

Launched in 2022, Batch 22 Classic Gold New American Aquavit is a unique grain-based spirit with a blend of botanicals. The American twist on a traditional Scandinavian aquavit recipe is the brainchild of Batch 22 co-founder and CEO Matthew Arkin. The actor tried a spirit in the 1970s while on a movie set in Eastern Europe and the experience stayed with him for life. After decades of searching and tasting, he could not find anything similar. During the pandemic, he set out to replicate the recipe with co-founders Bruce Glassman and Marc Marosi. The 22nd recipe turned into the first prototype batch, a smooth, complex, and approachable spirit quite unlike classic aquavit. Traditionally, fennel and anise are the core botanicals used. Instead, the team opted for citrus, caraway, and dill. Distilled 6 times and with no added sugar, it's a unique 80-proof spirit without any artificial additives.
