In the late 1960’s, an esteemed group of Finnish visionaries desired to create a vodka brand that embodied the best offerings of Finland. The challenge was to design the perfect vodka that truly embraced the country’s finest ingredients born from the untouched and pristine nature of their homeland and share with as many people around the world as possible. They succeeded. One of nature’s most precious gifts to us is pure glacial spring water, the water we use to make our vodka. This water is in such pristine condition, it would be a shame to tamper with it in the slightest way.So instead of trying to improve it, we respect it, admire it, and protect it.Where others must filter water several times before it’s pure enough, here, nature itself has given us the perfect filter: a glacial moraine that was created in the last Ice Age over 10,000 years ago.Out of respect for nature, our vodka, and our vodka drinkers, we go to great lengths to protect our glacial spring, promising that the water we use today is as pure as it was thousands of years ago.
Finlandia Vodka is made exclusively in Finland from the finest six-row barley grown under the long days and white nights of the Finnish summer, and from pure glacial spring water.
The barley is distilled into grain spirits, using a continuous multi-pressure distillation system with more than 200 distillation steps. The sophisticated process takes place at a state-of-the art distillery in the tiny village of Koskenkorva.
The water in Finlandia Vodka is naturally filtered through glacial moraine formed during the Ice Age over 10,000 years ago. Due to its ultimate purity, the natual spring water requires no chemical treatment.
