I understand that aquavit is traditionally made using a neutral that originates from either rye or potatoes. It is then infused with a predominate flavor of caraway and sometimes dill, among other botanicals. Often barrel aged, sometimes not.

To those that make or enjoy aquavit, would it be off-putting to see used a neutral derived from a source other than rye or potatoes? TIA.

I don't think there is an issue for you to use a different neutral base. The base will impact the mouthfeel of the spirit so depending on how you want to support the botanicals, you could go a number of ways.
