Drink water in between

Drinking water is vital for wellbeing, but it’s easy to forget. To remind our customers of the importance of drinking water, we’re introducing Välivesi – a lightly carbonated bottled water.

When you drink water in between alcoholic beverages, you’ll consume alcohol in greater moderation and maintain a good fluid balance. Of course, in addition to sparkling Välivesi, the world’s best tap water – Finnish tap water – is also ideal for this.

Välivesi will be available from Alko stores and our online shop from 3 June.

Water balances flavours

The right beverage crowns a good meal, experience or evening out. Välivesi fits naturally into our selection, helping people to find the right combination of food and beverage. Water is also an excellent alternative as the only beverage with a meal.

These days, you’ll find special beverages to complement the taste experience of every dish, but it’s always a good idea to have some refreshing water available at mealtimes. Water balances flavours and rinses the palate in preparation for the next taste sensation.

If you drink, drink water too

Drinking alcohol dries out the body and raises your blood alcohol concentration. If you remember to drink water between alcoholic beverages, you’ll stay fresher and more alert throughout the evening and into next day – a party is good when you also feel good the day after. Water also prevents any dehydration arising from alcoholic beverages accompanying food.

Välivesi helps you drink more responsibly, which makes it a natural addition to our beverage selection.

Välivesi is also environmentally friendly

Alko’s Välivesi comes from the Kangaslahti spring in Kurikka, and is bottled using electricity generated by wind power. Välivesi is sold in deposit bottles made from 100 per cent recyclable plastic. Profits from the sale of Välivesi will be used to support the Pidä Saaristo Siistinä -Association.

Remember to take care of the environment by recycling your empty beverage packaging.
