From 11 May 2022, passengers on long-haul flights with Finnair will be able to indulge in a delectable concoction of gin, lingonberries and a dash of orange peel. This Nordic inspired delight is named ‘Northern Blush’ and was created in collaboration with Danish Mikropolis Cocktails.
Customers at Finnair’s Helsinki lounges can also sample the new cocktail on the ground for two days following its launch, before it becomes exclusively available in the air.
“Cocktails are a growing trend and have become a part of Finnair’s inflight dining experience. With Mikropolis, we found a partner who could understand our sustainability goals and work with Nordic ingredients to produce on a large scale”, said Lauri Ahonen, Finnair Kitchen Concept & Category Manager.
Served with ice and a slice of lemon it comes ready-mixed in a can, decorated in the colours of the sunset. The new cocktail is complimentary in Economy during the first meal service and can be bought for €8 per drink during the rest of the flight.
Since the company was founded in 2016, Mikropolis’ drinks have been available to buy in shops and restaurants, so hopes are high that the new partnership with Finnair will enable their cocktail to reach new heights.
