Help The National Audubon Society protect Iceland's most adorable birds.
Iceland is a land of massive glaciers and subterranean volcanoes. It’s home to psychedelic nocturnal auroras, unicorn whales (technically they’re called narwhals), and really cozy sweaters.
It’s a place unlike anywhere.
And home to a vodka unlike any other.
Our water comes from an arctic spring that runs through a 4,000-year-old lava field. It's some of the purest in the world. And pure water makes good vodka.
We distill Reyka in one of the few Carter-Head stills in the world. Its high copper level gives Reyka unparalleled smoothness from a single distillation. Skál (that means "cheers") to that.
Iceland is full of lava rocks. We use them to filter our vodka, giving it a crisp, clean taste. You could say it's “vodka on the rocks.” But we'd rather you didn't.
Reyka is distilled in Borgarnes (say Bor-gan-ess), Iceland, a coastal village surrounded by rich natural resources. The air here is so clean, our CO2 levels are actually falling. Our master distiller is Þórður Sigurðsson, who is also the local fireman and policeman.
Reyka is distilled in small batches to ensure exceptional quality. Each distillation takes about 6 hours and makes only 255 cases. By vodka standards, that’s tiny.
Our distillery is powered by geothermal energy from underground volcanoes. Not only is it environmentally friendly, it’s fun to talk about at cocktail parties.
