VOR // Iceland
Based in Iceland, Eimverk Microdistillery open in 2009. Their Vor Gin is the first pot distilled gin produced in Iceland. Taking its name from the Icelandic word for "spring", this gin is made from 100% organic Icelandic barley. 9 native Icelandic botanicals - juniper berries, rhubarb, crowberries, angelica root, birch leaves, creeping thyme, kale, iceland moss and sweet kelp - are then added. The final gin product is chill filtered and bottled at 47% ABV.
Distilled GinThis style of gin takes a neutral spirit and then adds juniper berries and other natural flavorings before it is re-distilled. After distillation, additional flavors (artificial or natural) and sweeteners may be added.
