In a land where the sun can shine at midnight, the vodka is made from pure glacial spring water, filtered by glacial moraine created thousands of years ago and from the golden Suomi barley which grows and ripens where other barley cannot grow, to give the less ordinary vodka a crisp, clear and smooth taste. In the north of Finland, the vodka embodies the Finnish spirit of living in harmony with nature by using its finest ingredients.
The tradition of truly Finnish vodka was started in 1970 by Alko. Only a year later, Finlandia was the first Scandinavian vodka to be sold in the United States. Thousands of years ago the glaciers receded leaving a glacial moraine to create pure glacial spring water giving the vodka its clarity and smoothness.
Every summer in Finland, the sun does not set for 72 days. It shines at midnight and its glow nourishes everything, making all in the land less ordinary. The golden Suomi barley grows where other barley cannot grow. In the cold north, it ripens under the midnight sun giving the vodka its crisp, light and clear taste. The Suomi barley creates a mash that undergoes more than 200 distillation steps, for more than 50 hours, overseen by Master Distillers before water from the Rajamaki glacial spring is added.
