A product created from Paleolithic water and a solar-cycle that only exists on Earth’s most extreme latitudes? It sounds like a face cream solely available to the wealthiest Frenchwomen in St. Tropez, but in reality it’s something much, much better: Finlandia.
Here’s why: a vodka is only as unique as its distilling process, and Finlandia’s is as inimitable as it gets. Their spring water is harvested from a glacial “moraine” that’s over 10,000 years old. Filters don’t get much more natural than that. As for the grain: Finland’s midnight summer sun produces more than just beautifully disorienting 24hr days and an excellent nickname for travel brochures (“Land of the Midnight Sun”, obviously); it also makes for barley that resembles strands of gold.
If you’re a vodka lover, you’ll consider it just as valuable. If you’re not a vodka lover, you will be.
