About Salmiakki Koskenkorva
Salmiakki Koskenkorva is the flagship liqueur of Finland. It is vodka-based (32% ABV), and salmiakki flavored.
Salmiakki is the Finnish blanket term for salty liquorice candies (in this liqueur's case, it is Tyrkisk Peber); the saltiness is derived from ammonium chloride rather than actual salt, and thus has a unique bite to it.
The liquorice flavour is extremely strong, the liqueur is a dark brown-black. It is not usually mixed, but if it is, it is in small quantities.
