Finnish folk metal greats Korpiklaani have announced plans to release their own vodka in celebration of their highly successful single “Vodka,” which serves as the lead-off track to the band’s 2009 album on Nuclear Blast Records, ‘Karkelo.’
For the spirit, Korpiklaani will be collaborating with renowned Finnish independent brewery/distillery Pyynikin (they also produced Korpiklaani’s lager).
Here’s more info on the band’s new vodka via today’s announcement:
Korpiklaani Vodka is a premium grain-based vodka from the land of a thousand lakes. Distilled, handpicked spruce, together with the purest water in the world, form a product with a unique forest aroma and perfect smoothness. No other word would describe it better: refreshing.
Samuli Peltonummi, the head distiller of Pyynikin Distilling Company is excited and proud of being able to distill Korpiklaani Vodka into an actual vodka. In his opinion, spruce gives a powerful and authentic Finnish flavor that fits well with Korpiklaani’s music and spirit.
To commemorate the occasion, Korpiklaani have also announced a live stream event from inside the Pyynikin brewery for Saturday, August 29th at 11 AM Pacific | 2 PM Eastern.
Bringing along with them a full production, stage, lights, and LED screens all built in front of the Beer tanks, this will be the event of the year. The livestream will stay available on the website for an unlimited time, so you can even watch a year later!
A video trailer for the live stream can be viewed below.
You can order the vodka, buy tickets to the upcoming stream, and get more info via Korpiklaani ‘s official website.
