Fact Sheets

Finlandia Vodka isn’t made, it’s born. It’s born from the purity of Finland’s nature. It’s born from the spirit and authenticity of the Finnish people. And, it’s born from the history and culture of Finland.

Finlandia Vodka celebrates the very best of Finland and allows our friends around the world to celebrate with us. Consider this your invitation to meet our country, our people and our vodka.

Finlandia Vodka is produced from entirely natural ingredients including the finest six-row barley, grown in fields under the long days and white nights of the Finnish Midnight Sun, and pure glacier spring water.

Our Six-row Barley

Only in Finland are the conditions just perfect for growing the perfect six-row barley. In Finland, nature tenderly cares for its crops in a way no human ever could. The six-row barley we use to make our vodka reaps the benefit of this special nurturing.

The story begins with Finland’s pure environment. While growing, the six-row barley soaks up Finland’s pristine air and water, and draws nourishment from its untainted soils.

From the outside it may seem that nature has slighted us by giving Finland a very brief growing season. But in reality, nature has done us a great favor by blessing our summer skies with the Midnight Sun, a sun that refuses to set for months at a time.

Under the sustaining glow of the Midnight Sun, the barley slowly ripens into delicate strands of gold. It’s as if the color not only tells us when the barley is ripe, but also speaks to its value.

With Finland’s pure environment and the Midnight Sun working in perfect harmony, the six-row barely is given special traits that make our vodka clean and crisp, just like Finland.

Our Water

When water trickles through nature’s filter, the result is pure.

One of nature’s most precious gifts to us is pure glacial spring water, the water we use to make our vodka. This water is in such pristine condition, it would be a shame to tamper with it in the slightest way.

So instead of trying to improve it, we respect it, admire it, and protect it.

Where others must filter water several times before it’s pure enough, here, nature itself has given us the perfect filter: a glacial moraine that was created in the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago.

Out of respect for nature, our vodka, and our vodka drinkers, we go to great lengths to protect our glacial spring, promising that the water we use today is just as pure as it was thousands of years ago.

The Midnight Sun: a celebration of life’s most simple treasures.

The sun rises. The sun sets. Nothing could be more predictable. But here in

Finland, nature plays by a different set of rules. During the summer, the sun refuses to set, creating “days” that last months. This special occurrence is called the Midnight Sun.

With continuous daylight, time stands still. Schedules lose meaning, and the only appointments that really matter are the ones with friends and loved ones.

So we gather with the people dearest to us and head out to nature, surrounding ourselves with its perfect beauty and vast simplicity. Our guards are dropped and our sprits are lifted. We talk and we laugh. We sing and we dance. With none of life’s pressures nipping at us, we are allowed to be our true selves.

The Midnight Sun is such an important part of our culture; we’ve honored it by giving it a prominent place on every bottle of Finlandia Vodka because it is the secret ingredient that allows our barley to grow and water to flow freely into every bottle for you to enjoy along with us.
