Helsinki Dry Gin is an artisanal, premium gin distilled with nine choicest hand-picked botanicals including the Arctic lingonberry. Blended with the purest Finnish water, Helsinki Dry Gin is full-bodied and balanced, with aromas of the Nordic forest and floral citrus flavours.
Helsinki Dry Gin was awarded as The Spirit of the Year 2016 in Destille Berlin, the leading craft spirits fair and competition in Europe. It is also a Category Winner as the Best Finnish Gin in the World Gin Awards 2016.
The unique taste of Helsinki Dry Gin comes from Finnish lingonberries, rich Balkan juniper and Seville orange and lemon peels. Furthermore in the palate are fennel and coriander seeds, Orris root, Angelica root and a small, but important, pinch of rose petals.
As a proof of our quality, every bottle is individually numbered and carries the signature of our Master Distiller Mikko Mykkänen.
The gin is distilled in a traditional strength of 47% vol. to heighten the palate and achieve a smooth, pleasant mouth feel. As Helsinki Dry Gin is full of aromatic oils and is not chill filtered, it may go a bit misty in cocktails.
“Most gins are designed to be a component, rather than a stand alone. Not Helsinki Dry Gin. It is a superb stand alone. Round, smooth and deep from lips to throat, full of subtle character. It's a friendly, easy taste that gets more complex as you savour it. Like all friends.” – One happy drinkersee brochure

Helsingfors Fiskehamns Akvavit is a smooth and spicy Finnish premium akvavit. Its full taste and beautiful golden colour comes from maturation in French oak casks.
Aromatic Helsingfors Fiskehamns Akvavit is the only Finnish akvavit on the market. It is made with superb Finnish caraway, spicy fennel and dill seeds, and fresh lemon peel.
The botanicals are infused in grain spirit before distillation in a copper still. Part of the akvavit is matured in French oak casks for 12 weeks, and then blended with fresh clear akvavit. That’s how it gets its uniquely smooth and refreshing taste.
Helsingfors Fiskehamns Akvavit gets its name from Helsinki, known as Helsingfors in Swedish, and its Kalasatama district, Fiskehamnen in Swedish, where the akvavit is distilled and bottled by hand. As a sign of quality every bottle is numbered and comes with a signature of our Master Distiller Mikko Mykkänen.
Helsingfors Fiskehamns Akvavit is the perfect schnapps for a seafood dinner or crayfish party – or drink one with an open top herring sandwich, delicious! It is best chilled to fridge temperature, which brings its aromas to the fore. It is also wonderful as a digestive after dinner, chased with a beer or as an ingredient in exciting cocktails.
The akvavit is distilled in strength of 41,5% vol. for a smooth and pleasant sipping.see brochure

Helsinki Applejack is a spirit produced from the best Finnish apples. Northern apple varieties produce an aromatic, fruity distillate, which is then matured for six months in small oak casks. Maturation turns it into sweet and flowery Helsinki Applejack. The freshness of apple is mixed with notes of toffee and vanilla.
Only Finnish apples are used to make Helsinki Applejack. They are sourced from two apple farms in Southern Finland. Sour apple varieties give distillate its taste, sweet ones the pleasing balance.
The apples are cold-pressed at the farm and the must is then delivered to The Helsinki Distilling Company in Helsinki, where it is fermented into cider. The fermentation process takes five to six weeks.
After distillation, the aromatic apple distillate is placed in small new French oak barrels, where it will mature for six months. The maturation time is shorter than typically with apple spirits, which is to preserve the unique fresh taste of Finnish apples.
Helsinki Applejack is excellent on its own after dinner, and it pairs especially well with a cup of high quality black tea. It also works perfectly in cocktails or with a splash of tonic and a slice of apple.
The strength of the Applejack is 43 % vol. which accentuates the mature aromas. As a guarantee of quality all the bottles come with signature of our Master Distiller Mikko Mykkänen. The bottles are numbered and vintage stamped.see brochure
