Regular subscribers are well aware of our “Life Under Lockdown Adult Beverage Exchange Program” which has been underway since mid-March of 2020. Our motto…
Just because we can’t drink together doesn’t mean that we can’t share drinks.
Back in September or October, The Wookie was kind enough to share two versions of The Finnish Long Drink, i.e. the original and a cranberry version. Today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table will feature a review of the original version (the cranberry version is long gone. It was quite refreshing!).
Before we get to the review, here are a few words about The Finnish Long Drink taken directly from their website:
Long Drink is a top selling category of alcohol in Finland – a legendary taste that is now available in America.
The roots of long drinks go back to the 1952 Summer Games in Finland, when the country of only 4 million people was still recovering from World War II. Concerned with how to serve drinks quickly enough to all the visitors, the government commissioned the creation of a revolutionary new liquor drink, and so the first long drinks were born.
Now this legendary taste has finally been brought to America by the next generation of Finns who want the world to experience the refreshing and unique Finnish Long Drink.
Given The Wookie’s enthusiasm for The Long Drink, we went into this tasting with a healthy dose of optimism because if The Wookie is impressed with a beverage and excited to share it, odds are, it’s pretty darn good.
Has Life Under Lockdown affected The Wookie’s palate?
Is The Long Drink actually good?
Would we drink it again?
