Beer Description

A mixed drink made from gin and, most commonly, grapefruit soda.

LONG DRINK” is a top selling category of alcoholic beverages in Finland – a legend that is now available in America.

The roots of long drinks go back the 1952 Summer Games in Helsinki, Finland. The country of four million people was still poor and recovering from World War II. Full of pride for their country, the Finns wanted to give all athletes and tourists an unforgettable experience.

However, the authorities had a serious concern – how to serve drinks quickly enough to all visitors?! To solve this they came up with a revolutionary idea of a new liquor drink and so the first long drinks were born. The people fell in love and demanded to keep them after the Games.

Now The Legend of 1952 has finally been brought to America by the next generation of Finns who want the world to experience the refreshing and unique Finnish Long Drink.

Cheers – Kippis!
