Due to its name, the Molotovka brand is brought to life evoking a multitude of connotations. The design refers to the Molotov cocktails which the Finnish resistance used successfully in the Winter War of 1939/40 against Soviet tanks. By use of a linear bottle with only a tiny bit of bright red, an emphatically sturdy box package, and the eye-catching positioning of danger warnings, the brand promotes an image which includes a number of values such as toughness, personal freedom and social support.
