Koskenkorva – Vodka from a Village

Here at Addicted, we are always looking for something different, something better, and brands, and people that like to take a step outside of the box, and that’s how we found Koskenkorva Vodka aka Vodka from the village.

Stepping away from the usual drink inspirations of the same old same, they have created a Vodka that is made for those who expect something better, a great spirit, and just as important, the inspiration to make cocktails that are something you haven’t tried before, and even more, maybe would have never even thought of for a vodka cocktail.

The farmers of Koskenkorva are honest, dedicated and hard-working people. They’ve been the backbone of Koskenkorva Vodka for six decades. And most have worked as farmers already for generations.The barley in Koskenkorva is one of a kind. Saana and Elmeri, our custom barley varieties, are the northernmost barleys in the world. The long days of their summer growing season make it possible to get a great harvest in the autumn. The Water is as pure as it gets. 18000 cubic meters of it is filtered daily through the ridges of Salpausselkä and all they need to do is to filter out the leaves and branches, and as we all know, time, know-how and the right ingredients are what great spirits.

In cases like this, it really does take a village.
