Helsinki Barrel Aged Gin

Helsinki Barrel Aged Gin is an artisanal, premium gin aged few months in American Oak casks. Like its sibling, the Helsinki Dry Gin, it is distilled with eight choicest hand-picked botanicals including the Arctic lingonberry. After maturation in wood, the gin is blended with the purest Finnish water. Helsinki Barrel Aged Gin is full-tasting and balanced, with aromas of the Nordic forest and smooth cask finish.

The smooth taste and golden color of Helsinki Barrel Aged Gin is a result of resting the gin in wood. The botanicals used are Finnish lingonberries, rich Balkan juniper and Seville orange and lemon peels together with fennel and coriander seeds, Orris and Angelica roots.


The origins of gin go as far as 16th century Holland to a specific drink called Jenever, or Dutch gin. Jenever was a really strong distilled malt wine which was often barrel aged.

Barrel aging became a natural phenomenon in the gin scene in the 18th century as casks were the usual choice to store, transport and, of course, smuggle spirits. Barrel aged gin disappeared in the middle of the 20th century but has made a comeback lately. We decided to resurrect this noble drink with a really specific taste profile in our own way and give it that unique Helsinki twist.

The label represents the dark, beautiful wooden casks that give Helsinki Barrel Aged Gin its wonderful notes and beautiful color.


Helsinki Barrel Aged Gin is excellent to be sipped as a stand alone or with an espresso like grappa. It is wonderful in a Gin & Tonic and works perfectly as a basis for any gin cocktails. Some say it is a whiskey lover’s gin!
