Zug, Switzerland, 1 November 2023 - Following its announcement on 19 June 2023,  Coca-Cola HBC AG ("Coca-Cola HBC") is pleased to announce the completion of the acquisition by its wholly-owned subsidiary CC Beverages Holdings II BV of Brown-Forman Finland Oy ("Company"), owner of the Finlandia vodka brand ("Finlandia"), from Brown-Forman Corporation's wholly-owned subsidiary, Brown-Forman Netherlands BV. The total consideration amounts to US$220 million and is subject to a customary completion accounts review process.


Finlandia was established in 1970 and is a leading vodka brand in Central and Eastern Europe.
