    I don't like vodka, I am more a beer kind of guy, but I coudn't resist getting this amazing bottle when I saw it... a 1'75 litres Finlandia vodka bottle designed by Tapio Wirkkala!!!

    I love the fact it looks just like a part of the Ultima Thule series by Wirkkala. After all, Wirkkala was one of the pioneers in the ice-looking glass of the 60s and 70s.

    I also love the fact that the contents of this bottle evaporated in time and thus have left an amazing iridiscence inside the bottle.

    I also have a Finlandia vodka miniature bottle, that I guess is simply inspired by Wirkkala's work, but would love to get the normal size bottle and, also, the one designed by Harri Koskinen. I don't mind if they're full... I can invite my freinds to some strong drinks!

      Congratulations on a great find, austro.
      Where did you find it?
      Ibiza? Sitga? Barcelona?
      Or Helsinki?

      @vlkma:In fact the handle was quite a surprise... in the add there was only a very bad picture of the front of the bottle and when I opened the package and found out it had this great handle... mmmmmm! :)

      @Amber... you naughty girl!

      @vet... well, I am afraid you'll feel dissapointed... I got it at the Spanish competence of ebay... (a bad site, I have to say, but you can find all kind of weird things)

      Thanks for the loves and comments everybody!

      stunning bottle and are these still being made?

      I wish!!! After Wirkkala's bottle was discontined they commissioned Harri Koskinen to design one, which I don't know why, but has been already discontinued and now they sell their vodka in a "nice" bottle designed by a Finnish design studio. Wirkkala's was foe sale for a long time though.

      I have the regular bottle up for auction on eBay and I'm not sure if it's price worth so I guessed at it
