Reyka is an Icelandic vodka, distilled from wheat and barley. It is also the world's first "green" vodka, it being made from glacial water and distilled using sustainable energy from geothermal heat. Good work Reyka!
Reyka is not just made in Iceland, its made of Iceland.
Reyka's 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.
Reyka distill 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. They use them to filter our vodka, giving it a crisp, clean taste. You could say it's “vodka on the rocks.” But lets not ☺
Reyka is distilled in Borgarnes (say Bor-gan-ess), Iceland, a coastal village surrounded by rich natural resources. The air here is so clean, the CO2 levels are actually falling. Reyka's master distiller is Porour Sigurosson, 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.
Reyka's distillery is powered by geothermal energy from underground volcanoes. Not only is it environmentally friendly, it’s fun to talk about at cocktail parties.
