Finlandia Vodka isn't made, it's born. From the purity of Finland's natural, prisitine environment where production focuses on creating a pure vodka. With a global reputation for its unique Nordic heritage, Finlandia's unparalleled quality can be attributed to only the finest ingredients: pure glacial spring water, a legacy of the Ice Age, and six-row barley, which offers the highest quality starch and the lowest possible content of natural oils, and only using natural fruit flavours and essences, delivering a crisp, clean taste.
