    I have an ecommerce store, with a blog on it.
    I have created some really cool content for the blog, and gone for a real press release.

    Lucky me, I got some backlinks from the highest news sites with Brand / Natural anchor. Some of them are do-follow, some of them are nofollow.

    I know, that these backlinks are powering up my whole site, but how can I power up something i really want to (instead of that article)

    I am thinking about 301 redirect the destination link with the article.
    To an inner page I really want to rank (
    ranking already in good position)

    Any advice on this?

    You could do that. But I am not sure if it wise enough. You said the page is in good position already, why not just place a link back to the page? As advice above.

    I am afraid I dont clearly undestand this, but I try to rephrase my question.
    I have an article, with powerful Branded backlinks.

    I dont want to rank the article, and I dont need the article for my sales neither. Its like: domain.com/article.
    I want to rank my product page like: domain.com/product

    Should I 301 redirect domain.com/article to domain.com/product, to get the maximum lukjuice/power/coconutliquor?
    Or just add some internal links, like @aidenhera says?

    IMO proper Internal linking will be the best solution to your site.

    Another vote for internal linking. Would be a shame to lose these links in the future just because you became too greedy and redirected to a product page. Also keep in mind this could cause a "Soft 404" from Google's point of view and all link juice would be lost.

    Do internal links pass any link juice at all between your pages or is it just to get traffic? Guess I never really thought about that before

    It would be better if you use the power of internal links.
