Any suggestions on what liquor stores have any?

Here's a link to their product page: http://northshoredis...com/aquavit.htm and a link to where it can be found in the Madison area: http://www.northshor...ery.com/buy.php
I'm not an Aquavit guy so I cannot speak to its quality but my wife and I are both big fans of their gins. The #11 is my choice and the #6 is one of her faves. The distillery is owned and operated by a great couple -- Sonja and Derek Kassebaum -- who are very skilled, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I'd definitely give their product a try.

What I'm after, primarily, are imported aquavits. Linie and Aalborg are generally available at local liquor stores here (or at least across the Delaware River in NJ, away from the grubby paws of the PaLCB stores. I figured that in an area with a relatively large Scandinavian heritage population, the regional distributors might be importing a broader selection. I'd love to get my hands, for example, on another bottle of Gilde or Simmers Taffle (from the Norway's sole commercial distiller, Arcus) or some of the better products from Sweden or Denmark.

A nice change of pace even tho I wouldn't make it my regular tipple.
