Ägräs Distillery Family changes and Autumn program

Autumn is just around the corner. Fun fact, did you know Autumn used to be called Harvest? Funny how it feels like summer never really came to Finland this year. Hopefully we’re up for a snow filled winter at least. Anyway, what have we been doing this Summer except distilling? We’ve been negotiating with a new domestic and international distributor for our products, giving out interviews, winning quite a few awards, visited different events ranging from design, food and beer festivals, introduced our craft products to international opinion leaders and last but not least had some changes in our organization.

CEO Susanna Kankare takes her summer vacation on 6th of September and leaves on maternity leave on 13th of October. Our Master Distiller Tomi Purhonen takes on the responsibilities of Executive Vice President from 6th of September until 13th of October, when he undertakes the almighty title of CEO. We wish Susanna a lot of luck in the upcoming months and a wonderful new motherhood.
