The Nordic wine and spirits producer Altia has signed a distribution agreement with Infinium Spirits to enter the U.S. market with the Finnish brand, Koskenkorva Vodka.
The recently rebranded Koskenkorva Vodka is made from local barley, spring water and a continuous distillation process, the company says. As the key export brand of Altia, the spirit is now available in almost 30 countries.
“The partnership with Infinium Spirits gives Altia a terrific opening to the U.S. market,” says Janne Halttunen, SVP export at Altia. “Infinium Spirits is a strategic partner to us and we aim to build the brand and distribution with a long-term view.”
The U.S. market will initially launch with Koskenkorva Vodka Original, 80 proof in both 750-ml and 1-L sizes. The suggested retail price is $24.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
“We are excited to complement our distinctive spirits portfolio with this ‘vodka from a village’,” says Steven Brecher, president at Infinium Spirits.
Founded in 2005 and based in Aliso Viejo, California, Infinium Spirits specializes in the import, sales, and marketing of its portfolio of brands which include: Seagram’s Vodka, Templeton Rye, Tequila Corralejo, Fratelli Branca, Zaya Rum, Crystal Head Vodka and Kerrygold Irish Cream.
