Pedersen Nr. III – the Original New Zealand Aquavit - is a premium craft-distilled botanical spirit absolutely unique to Aotearoa - a "must have" for every contemporary bar and restaurant.
A magnificent expression of aquavit, the iconic Nordic spirit, Pedersen is bold, beautiful and elegant, a stunning blend of northern tradition and southern style crafted with aroha in Taranaki.
Similar to schnapps or gin, traditional aquavit features caraway as its predominant flavour - but the subtle blending of rare botanicals and aromatics found only in our southern forests elevates Pedersen into a superbly smooth and engaging spirit - further enhanced by double-maturation with pōhutukawa and mānuka, finished in oak bourbon barrels.
Perfect as a sipping spirit; magnificent as a cocktail base; Pedersen Nr. III is bold, flavoursome and unique – innovative, small-batch artisanal distilling at its very best. The new desirable - and profitable - essential for every discerning top-shelf.
