The aged version of Kyrö's smash hit Gin.

The idea for Kyrö Distillery Company came about when a bunch of friends were hanging in the sauna and sipping on Rye ― which is undoubtedly how many great stories start in Finland. The beverage on hand probably had something to do with the distillery focusing on rye Spirit exclusively. After a little bit of tinkering and distilling at home, they found an old dairy where their very own stills started running in 2014. With their maturing Whisky safely tucked away, they turned to Gin in the meantime. The first award came practically instantly and their stock was sold out in a matter of days.

What started as a way to keep themselves busy while waiting for the Whisky to mature, turned out to be a delicious Gin! Kyrö Dark Gin was formerly known as Koskue. This aged variant spends 3 to 12 months in American oak. Apart from the aging, it's similar to their regular Gin that is crafted with 13 traditional botanicals and 4 locally-foraged Nordic ones. The meadowsweet, cranberries, and birch leaves are all in there, but the sea buckthorn is replaced by orange peel and black pepper, making for a deliciously oaky Spirit that's super versatile ― it'll warm you up on a cold, stormy night or cool you on a hot summer day.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
