Vodka with a soft smoky nature and whisky-like character.
The idea for Sauna Barrel emerged from the smoky heat of an old smoke sauna in the village of Koskenkorva. The vodka has been aged in oak barrels where it inherits a light taste of bourbon with a hint of tar and smoke.
”Koskenkorva Sauna Barrel has a great taste, it reminds me of a good aged Mezcal. I often enjoy Sauna Barrel on the rocks.”
- Pontus, Export Director, Spirits & Wines
How it's made
Koskenkorva Sauna Barrel is made from vodka distilled in the Koskenkorva village and aged in oak barrels.
What it tastes like
The taste is full-bodied with hints of earthy oak, herbal elements, vanilla, bourbon, and light notes of tar and smoke.
How to use it
Despite the name, you won't need a sauna in order to enjoy Koskenkorva Sauna Barrel. It is great on any evening, on the rocks or as a simple cocktail with coke. It’s the first vodka that can be used in traditional whiskey cocktails such as Mint Julep or Manhattan.
