Kyrö Koskue gin blends together locally sourced botanicals with unique flavors achieved from American white oak cask maturation. Distilled and created by Kyrö, this unique expression comes from the world's northernmost gin distiller and brings together botanicals and flavors found only in the northern Finnish climate. The gin is then aged in small American oak barrels for three months, before being fine-tuned with distilled orange peel and black pepper.

The unique aging and distillation process of Kyrö Koskue gin gives it a distinctive flavor that challenges the idea of what a gin can be. The oak barrels offer up an undertone of vanilla that blends beautifully with the spicy black pepper and fresh orange peel. The gin also offers up flavors that evoke a summery flower meadow and ends with notes of honey and oak.
