On Thursday 9th of August Pear & Carrot was co-hosting the Suomi Matsuri – Nordic & Nippon Fusion event together with Tenkei and Kyrö Distillery Company.
The venue at Tenkei, a Japanese Izakaya, quaranteed an authentic Japanese atmosphere. On the menu there were innovative fusion canapes which mixed both Japanese and Nordic cuisine: meatballs with teriyaki sauce and skagen with riceballs and nori, to mention some examples. Pear & Carrot offered tasting of Finland’s most well-known liquor brands: Kyrö Distillery Company, Laplandia and Lignell & Piispanen.
Nordic flavours are currently trending in Asia. In the spirits of these brands one can taste the most typical flavours of Finland and the Nordics. Kyrö Distillery Company’s award-winning Napue is a rye gin. If something, rye is the most Finnish of all grains. The taste of fresh berries can be enjoyed in Lignell & Piispanen’s products. The ingredients of the Arctic Artisan Liqueurs are picked in Finnish forests where the berries get a lot of sunlight in the nightless nights of northern Finland. Laplandia has a wide range of different vodka flavours, among others Coco Shot, Mint Shot, Bilberry and Espresso.
Pear & Carrot exclusively distributes Kyrö Distillery Company’s, Laplandia’s and Lignell & Piispanen’s products to Hong Kong and Macau.
