Hartwall Original Long Drink is a refreshing mix of gin (5.5%) and grapefruit and was invented for the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. For the first time ever, Helsinki was going to be packed with visitors from all over the world. Since local restaurants did not have enough workforce to serve them, Hartwall brewery produced an innovation: a cocktail in a can, easy to serve and ready to drink.

The drink was supposed to be served only during the Olympics, but Finns fell in love with it and the production has continued ever since. Today Hartwall Original Long Drink is the most sold alcoholic beverage in Finland. Many also call it ‘the national drink of Finland’.

Original Long Drink is available in one flavor of 33cl (can) and 30cl (glass).
