Nordic mint meets Koskenkorva’s refreshingly straightforward vodka, resulting in a particularly versatile liqueur. Minttu is perfect in hot chocolate, various cocktails, or just enjoyed neat.
An entirely Finnish story, Koskenkorva’s production starts with its grain. Made with the world’s most northernmost grown barley, a collective of over 1500 farmers grow the native grain used in the spirit’s production, all grown within a 200km radius of the village.
Unfiltered locally-sourced natural spring water is also a vital element which contributes to the spirit’s smooth, natural flavour.
Koskenkorva’s state-of-the-art process of continuous distillation means the fermenting barley mash is distilled over 250 times, with the spirit being continuously fed into five separate distillation columns.
In pursuit of absolute sustainability, four additional supporting columns then recycle the fusel alcohol (spent alcohol) from the main distillation, contributing to an impressive 99% efficiency level.
This process of continuous distillation also reduces water consumption, energy and chemical use by eliminating the need for unnecessary washing.
Producing Minttu is as simple as adding cool Nordic mint to Koskenkorva’s incredibly smooth vodka.
