Business & market

We believe that "the world's best..." is still in the making.

Business & market

Ägräs Distillery Oy was founded in Q3 of 2015. The company headquarters, production and entertainment facilities are all in Fiskars. Our production premises on the banks of Fiskars river covers 200 square meters with a yearly distilling capacity of 150,000 liters.

The same premise hosts also our tasting room, the Tap Room. In the Tap Room customers can enjoy our carefully crafted products as well as other alcoholic beverages made by local artesan producers while they familiarize themselves with our distilling processes through a big window separating the two spaces. The Tap Room hosts a variety of events ranging from product tastings to smaller concerts and works also as a shop for branded merchandise. During summer the space hosts tastings of upcoming products, giving the customers a glimpse of our product development process. When not in public use, the Tap Room can be rented for private events creating extra income. The Tap Room seats 24 people and houses also an outdoor terrace.

Our mission is to produce the finest hand-crafted spirits made with premium grain, uniquely balanced and infused, craft distilled, aged, and hand bottled at our premises.

Our goal is to do more than just compete with our products domestically and internationally. We are going back to the roots of Fiskars and awakening a whole community of craftmanship in the making. We believe that "the world's best..." is still in the making.

Our story

Wild botanical herbs and aged spirits form the heart of Finnish nature.

Ägräs Distillery is situated in Fiskars, Finland - a historic village surrounded by the raw magnificence of Finnish nature, internationally renowned for its rich heritage in artistry and design.

Our philosophy about the craft of distilling embodies centuries-long traditions and knowhow of using handpicked, wild herbs from the region for creating potions and spirits that heal body and soul. We transcend this knowledge into our unique Gin and Akvavit which manifest the natural integrity of our ingredients.

From the pure waters of Fiskars to the seasonal selected botanical roots, seeds, flowers, herbs and berries that we have handpicked from our surroundings, we create one of a kind spirits, exclusively crafted for the rest of the world to enjoy.
