Napue (46.3% abv) is a Finnish gin made from rye that comes in a 50cl bottle.

Brand owner Kyrö says: “Gin is the craft beer of spirits: it’s here to stay and there’s no going back to an Old World dominated by few big players. Finnish, rye-based gin seems to occupy a nice, unique space among all the gins coming into the market.”

Napue is described as: “Herbal and sweet with essential oils of meadowsweet. Gentle citrus on the nose. Full-bodied herbal flavour ending with notes of pepper and rye on the tongue.”
