Finland is known for its cold climate and rather strange habits like plunging into icy water after 100 °C sauna. It is also the home ground of the most fresh tasting shot on earth.
Minttu, the original mint shot from Finland was born in the late 80’s as a bunch of Finns came up with an idea of crystal clear and ice cold peppermint liqueur served in an ice cube shaped bottle.
The legendary mint shot first built its reputation within the Nordic skiing scene, where the famous Minttu-kaakao (Minttu Chocolate Drink) is a evergreen after-ski hit. Despite its roots in wintery Finland, during the years Minttu has become a legendary party shot conquering also the quirkiest clubs and the hottest beach parties!
Actually, no matter what the on-going season brings, Minttu knows how to get the party started.
And by the way, did you know that Minttu is a Finnish translation for mint herbs, it´s also a popular girl´s name?
The Minttu foundation is pure Finnish groundwater which flows 3 months through sandy esker formed after last ice age, 10 000 years ago!
