From the distiller:
Crafting from the forests of Finland, our distilling division continues in the footsteps that date back to
1932 and the end of prohibition. Our secretive bootleggers have stepped out of the shadowy woods and
developed into the modern day distillers, showing the world why Finns are the happiest people.
The heart of the process derives from the deepest forest and shores of thousand lakes.
We combine our passion with the finest ingredients and purest water of Finland.
Pyynikin does a lot of different beers and has three breweries, two of them is in Finland and one is located in Haljala, northeastern Estonia.
Besides a lot of beer they also have some handcrafted spirits like Gin and Vodka.
Their micro brewery located in the banks of the Tammerkoski in the best location of the center of Tampere does experiments and small batches
sold directly to resturants.
Pyynikin Recycled Citrus Gin is a crafted collaboration with Tiima Cocktail Bar in Tampere.
They have reused Tiima’s lemons and limes that have been pressed into juice and would otherwise be biowaste.
Recycled Citrus Gin was decided to be made as well from the already used spices in Pyynikin Payday Craft Gin.
The result is a new product that is fresh and strongly citric flavoured gin made from 100% biowaste.
It is produced in 0.5L bottles at 40%abv.
