“ArcusGruppen is already the world leader in Aquavit and The Sazerac Company’s strong spirits focus is a great starting point for capturing the Aquavit opportunity in the UA. We look forward to introducing our wonderful products to many more Americans together with Sazerac.”

Sazerac’s marketing manager for Linie, Megan Hurtuk, added: “This category presents a very exciting growth opportunity within the US marketplace, and we appreciate the energy surrounding it amongst the bar trade and core consumers.”
