Food & Drink

Considered one of the most popular drinks in Finland, the Finnish Long Drink hits the United States just in time for the holidays. In Finland, people enjoy these drinks year-round, even on the coldest of winter days. The drink’s origins begin in 1952 at the Summer Olympic Games in Helsinki. At this time, the country was still recovering from the effects of World War II and the government faced the problem of serving drinks quickly enough to visitors coming to the Olympics.

As a result, the government commissioned a revolutionary new drink that was both delicious and fast to serve. Now, the legendary drink comes to America with a haul of awards to its name, including the Gold Medal at the prestigious New York International Spirits Competition. Many Americans are already in love with the drink, with celebrities like Miles Teller, DJ Kygo and PGA golfer Rickie Fowler actively involved in sharing the story of the brand and its delicious drinks with all.


The Finnish Long Drink blends sparkling citrus flavors with a light and crisp feel. The beverage, made with premium liquor, serves as a refreshing option for hot days and a delicious drink on cold nights. Choose from four flavors and styles: traditional, zero, strong and cranberry. The zero option has no carbs or sugar, while the cranberry offers a festive twist on the drink.
