The Reyka distillery - Iceland’s first distillery - is located in Borgarnes, Iceland. (For those unfamiliar with Icelandic that’s pronounced Bor-gan-ess). Located 74km outside of Reykjavik, this coastal village is removed from industrial life and surrounded by wonderful natural resources. To help paint a picture of how untouched the resources are here, the CO2 levels in Borgarnes are actually falling. Seriously, the air is that clean.
With bountiful, crisp arctic waters and abundant lava rocks at our disposal, we can’t help but want to give the world a little taste of what we experience every day in Iceland. That’s why we created Reyka. It’s not just made in Iceland. It’s made of the things that make this island unlike any other place in the world.

Overall, this is a clean and neutralvodka that’s smooth and nicely balanced. It’s muscular enough for chilled martinis, but is laced with subtle, delicate notes of candied lemon peel and coriander. Distilled from grain and “filtered through ancient arctic lava rocks. - K.N.

Clean and fresh. Aromas of sweet spring water and herbs. It is soft and almost sweet in the mouth; round and smooth, like very pure water. Flavors of rich minerals linger on the tongue.
