Helsinki Tyrnipontikka combines Finnish berries and European distilling tradition in a completely new way.
The pomace of sea buckthorn berries, left over from producing the Tyrni-Gin Likööri (Sea- Buckthorn Gin Liqueur), is first fermented into a mash and then distilled into a distinctive brandy. It is a variation of the same process that is used to make grappa in Italy or marc in France, but instead of grapes the glorious sea buckthorn berry is used. The result is a smooth, aromatic drink that combines tradition with innovation.
The name of the drink, pontikka, a traditional homemade spirit, is a nod to Finnish spirit-making tradition, but piques the interest with a novel combination of ingredients and style. You won’t find a drink quite like it anywhere else.
Helsinki Tyrnipontikka is perfect with an espresso after a meal, or on its own. It can also be used in various cocktails.
