About 85 % of the barley we use is bought from our contract farmers, most of it within a maximum distance of 150 km from the distillery.
The Koskenkorva distillery is a modern production plant that utilises the barley grain in full. In addition to grain spirit, the plant produces starch and raw material for animal feed. Even the carbon dioxide generated in the process is collected and used for example in greenhouse cultivation.
We also have our own bioenergy power plant at Koskenkorva. The bioenergy power plant uses barley husk as a fuel and produces steam energy for the distillery. Thanks to the renewable fuel, we have been able to decrease our carbon dioxide emissions remarkably.
