Tuonela is the Finnish underworld located across a raging river. Ruled by its first couple Tuoni & Tuonetar, it is a grim place but also home to valuable things to the living. Because of this, many a man ventures into Tuonela e.g. in search for spells – but only a few will ever return...

The Finnish beverage manufacturer Koskenkorva has a popular herbal liqueur called Valhalla "The Spirit of Nordic Legends". I have always found it silly. Not only does it confuse Finnish and Nordic legends, but also utilizes the modern Vegvisir symbol which has nothing to do with Nordic legends.

This new design, spearheaded by the god of death Tuoni himself, offers a fresh, more lore-accurate design for the beloved beverage.
