Reyka's distillery is located in the town of Bogarnes on the west coast of Iceland. Barley grain spirit (barley and some wheat) is brought to them from Scotland where it is redistilled in a single distillation in a copper-lined Carter-Head still. Each batch produces about 255 cases and takes six hours to complete. The vodka is filtered through lava rock and the water used to bring the vodka to proof is arctic spring water. The distillery is powered by geothermal energy from underground volcanoes and as a result, produces zero emissions.

Tasting Notes

"The robust aroma is full of grain notes and little else. As you taste, the vodka is slick and has a moderately full body. A touch of lemon on the cereal grain flavor with a little sweetness. The finish is a bit bitter and peppery. The burn on the end makes the vodka seem hotter than 80 proof."
