Our brands

Anora's key trademarks play a central role in the company's strategy. Anora's own key brands, such as Koskenkorva, Linie, O.P. Anderson, Larsen, Skagerrak, Chill Out, Ruby Zin, Blossa, Wongraven and Falling Feather, have a strong market position and many of them have a long heritage to cherish in the Nordics.


Koskenkorva Sauna Barrel bottle with cocktail

Koskenkorva®

Koskenkorva is a classic vodka made from nature’s pure ingredients. Koskenkorva has been distilled in the village of Koskenkorva since 1953. We use the northernmost grown barley, pure unfiltered groundwater and continuous distillation, which result in the product’s unique taste. Koskenkorva has won several awards in international industry competitions.

Sustainability is an instrumental part of the Koskenkorva brand. The Koskenkorva distillery is a forerunner in the bio and circular economy. Anora and the Koskenkorva distillery won the 2018 Green Company of the Year, awarded by the Drinks Business Green Awards.


LINIE bottle carried with plate

LINIE Aquavit

LINIE Aquavit is our iconic Norwegian aquavit and the oldest aquavit brand in the world. For more than 200 years, each cask of LINIE Aquavit has been sent on a sea voyage, crossing the Equator twice. The constant rolling and changing temperature and humidity during the journey gives LINIE its smoothness and unique taste. And to this day, every drop of LINIE is poured into seasoned, oak sherry casks and sent on a journey to the other side of the world and back… to be matured at sea.​

LINIE Aquavit has been produced from the same botanical recipe since 1821. The aquavit is made from potatoes grown in the dark Norwegian soil and aromatized with spices such as caraway and star anise. Due to the long, light days and cold nights of the Nordic summer, the caraway gains a richness not found anywhere else.​


O.P. Anderson bottle with salmon snacks

O. P. Anderson®

Aquavit is an interesting, inherently Nordic category of spirits. The bartender community consider aquavits an exquisite cocktail ingredient. O.P. Anderson is the oldest and leading aquavit brand in Sweden, and it is taking promising steps also elsewhere in the Nordics. The classic spice formula of O.P. Anderson has inspired many of today’s aquavits.

The O.P. Anderson organic Björk and the ready-to-drink alternative respond to the more responsible drinking quest of the modern consumer.


Larse VSOP bottle and glass

Larsen®

Larsen Cognac is a combination of the Scandinavian spirit and the craftmanship and expertise of French Cognac connoisseurs. The history of the brand stems from a young Norwegian adventurer, Jens Reidar Larsen. We want to challenge the status quo of the Cognac industry and explore new and surprising ways of consuming Cognac.

Larsen Cognac has recently been introduced to China and is one of our key export brands.


Skagerak gin bottle and drink mixing

Skagerrak

No sea is like Skagerrak. It is Nordic by heart, and it has inspired us to create Skagerrak Gin in close collaboration with six selected Nordic bartenders. Skagerrak classic dry gin with juniper flavour, but with a unique Nordic profile containing distillates from Nordic botanicals like angelica, elderflower, rosehips and seaweed known as dulse. ​

The bottle design reflects the colour and character of the Nordic sky and the Skagerrak sea, and the bottle is sealed with a wooden cork with the North Star as a symbol. The three dots on the front of the bottle symbolize the three Nordic lighthouses that surround Skagerrak. ​


Chill Out BIBs and glasses

Chill Out®

Chill Out wines are a range of quality wines from selected vineyards in Europe, Australia, South Africa, North and South America that always offers you a variety of tastes and styles that are easy to like.

Chill Out wine taste best when shared with friends and loved ones, regardless occasion. We are for wine lovers, not necessarily experts. And we strongly believe that drinking wine should be as uncomplicated as it is good. Or as we say it - No fuss, just great wines.

Our way of being responsible is shown in the smartness of our production, packaging solutions, new products and product features. We have organic products too, but would rather like to talk about our on-going process of maximizing sustainability and being environmental.
