In the village of Koskenkorva, sustainability is a way of life. First of all, it’s worth mentioning that the recycling and reutilization rate of the Koskenkorva plant is 99,9%. Don’t worry. They're working on that last 0,1%. However, that is not the only thing they are focusing on. All in all, they work sustainably but they have a special focus on what they'd call circular economy. In addition to grain spirit, their plant produces starch and raw materials for animal feed. Even the carbon dioxide generated in the process is collected and used in greenhouse cultivation. They also have their own bio-energy power plant. It uses barley husks as fuel and produces steam energy that is then used in distillation. The ashes are used in the nearby barley fields as a fertilizer. And thanks to the renewable fuel, they have been able to decrease their carbon dioxide emissions remarkably.
Made from the distillation of anything containing fermentable sugars, Straight Vodka is a clear and unaged spirit. Cereal grains like wheat, rye and barley are the most commonly used bases, but modern Vodkas are now made from crops as diverse as sugar beets, grapes and potatoes. Ideally Straight Vodkas should be colorless, odorless and flavorless. They are sipped chilled and neat, or used as a base for a variety of cocktails, from the Martini to the Cosmopolitan.
