A leading Nordic wine and spirits producer Altia, has signed a distribution agreement with Infinium Spirits to enter the US market with Finnish brand, Koskenkorva Vodka.

Altia has decided to expand the Koskenkorva plant’s starch production. The aim of the investment is to notably increase the production capacity of barley starch. The Koskenkorva plant is the only facility in the world that produces starch out of barley. Barley starch is used e.g. in paper and paperboard industries.

Altia's own brands such as Koskenkorva®, O.P. Anderson®, Larsen®, Renault®, Blossa®, Chill Out®, Xanté® and Valhalla® have a strong market position and many of them a long heritage to cherish.
