Helsinki Tyrnipontikka

Price: €49.90 (US$57)

A Gold medal was awarded to Helsinki Tyrnipontikka for its “vegetal, herbaceous vibrancy”.

Bottled at 41.7% abv, the expression is made from the pomace of sea buckthorn berries, left over from producing Helsinki Distilling Company’s Tyrni-Gin Likööri. It is first fermented into a mash and then distilled into a brandy.

The name of the drink, pontikka, a traditional homemade spirit, is a nod to Finnish spirit-making traditions.
