“We are very excited to partner with Finnish company Arctic Blue Beverages, which has one of the most unique gins in the world: Arctic Blue Gin. The industry is highly competitive and operates on an ‘innovate or die’ basis, so it is no longer possible to compete with standard gin. Arctic Blue Gin has excelled in standing out from the crowd and being unique in its own way,” says Matt Redin, Marketing Manager at Vintage House Wine and Spirits.

The product selection committee at Vintage House Wine and Spirits was immediately attracted by Arctic Blue Gin’s interesting background, as well as its original taste and impressive packaging: “We immediately fell in love with the mystical story behind Arctic Blue Gin, which comes from the wild northern nature in a faraway land,” Redin continues.

“Bringing our gin to the Australian market is an important step for us in our Asia-Pacific strategy. The first container of gin is already on its way to the land down under, and our aim is to get our products widely distributed across Australia as soon as possible through Vintage House Wine and Spirits. Arctic Blue Gin is a labour and love for us and we have drawn inspiration, time and ingredients from Finnish nature into it. It’s a pleasure to see that it is appealing not only in Europe and Asia but also now in Australia,” says Valtteri Eroma, CEO of Arctic Blue Beverages Oy.

In addition to Finland, Arctic Blue Gin is currently sold in Norway, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Switzerland, England, France, Spain, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand and the Philippines.
