Finland's Koskenkorva has come up with this liqueur based on their award-winning vodka and that peculiarly Scandinavian commodity: salt-liquorice. We know, we know - it sounds vile, but our fair-haired friends absolutely adore it.

    At Helsinki airport duty-free I had already picked up all that I''m allowed, at Canada customs, when I saw this. Customs let me through free when they heard the real story: salmiakki powder in a tiny bag from the pharmacy, that you would place in the middle of your palm and lick; the only "candy" we had, could afford, during and right after WWII.

    My husband's favourite drink! Always a good present, he's never disappointed... So nice he finds it hard to make the bottle last a long time! ;)

    My husband tried this at the Scandinavian show in London and has loved it ever since! Sweet liquorice liqueur he says is the best drink ever!

    Visited Finland 3 times - lots of shots of this drink! One of my friends here in Canada has made his own recipe. Quite good!

    Try making a shot consisting of 20ml of this and 20ml of Baileys. It's called Grandmama's Slipper, and it looks like one too. Despite the name, the shot is really great!

    Here in Finland this is almost a must in parties, and one of the most popular shots in bars. And if you like this, i advice you to try the salmiakki-fruit mix called Hotti. If you can get your hands on it.

    Got it as a gift from a finnish friend. We were 4 friends that tried it and it was gone in less than 5 minutes... we loved it!

    very very perculiar. akin to licking the tyres of a car that has driven on salted roads, yet not entirely unpleasant, though mostly so. i picked up a bottle at the rotherhithe finnish church christmas market a few years ago and entertained guests with it for a while. do rather need another bottle now. tends to last, and few want another glass after tasting.

    I would love to find this in America! I had it in Finland. Best if sipped after being kept in the freezer.

    I always thought salmiakki was a greek dance!
