”’DREAM AND DARE’ IS OUR MOTTO”,                                                                                              FOOD FROM FINLAND
SAYS MIKKO KOSKINEN, CO-FOUNDER AT
KYRÖ DISTILLERY COMPANY.

Kyrö Distillery’s drinks can be paired with various
dishes. ”Gin and tonic goes fantastically with fatty fish,
such as salmon. Gin-cured salmon with cranberries and
rosemary is a Finnish classic.
Our Dairy Cream liqueur is great with coffee and dark
chocolate. As to our rye whisky, I recommend having it
with good company”, Mikko says.
