Finnair has collaborated with Finland-based Ainoa Winery to launch a new dessert wine. The wine, one of the first Finnish wines to be served in the sky, will be available exclusively to the airline’s business class passengers from this month.
Made from Lapland’s cloudberries and paired with hints of honey and citrus marmalade, the new wine has a distinctly Finnish flair. The drink’s rich, golden colour also inspired its name, ‘Kultainen’ which translates as ‘golden’, in a nod to Lapland’s 19th century gold rush.
According to Lauri Ahonen, Finnair Kitchen Concept and Category Manager, Finnair looks forward to bringing the flavours of Finland to the sky: “As we prepare to celebrate our centenary, we want to revisit our Nordic roots and offer our customers a traditionally Finnish experience.”
The bespoke berry wine was made by Ainoa Winery, who makes internationally recognised, award winning wines from Finnish berries and other forest ingredients.
“We know this will be a welcome addition to our onboard menu, complementing our popular blueberry juice and signature cocktail, Northern Blush,” added Ahonen.
