About Icelandic Spirits

As you might expect from this Arctic nation, vodka is the leading spirit. The Icelanders are very proud of their vodkas, given the purity of their glacial water; in fact, some of the vodkas produced in Iceland are considered "green", given the excellent source of water as well as the process of production using sustainable energy using geothermal heat.

Icelandic Mountain
Vodka
Clear color. Creamy, confected aromas and flavors of spumoni, peach jam, and pistachio paste with a round, dryish medium-to-full body and a lychee and mint cream finish. A vodka full of character, body, and confection – balanced and unexpected.

Old Tom Gin
Brilliant copper color. Aromas of caramel, stone pine, malted barley, and parsnip with a coarse, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, breezy vanilla yogurt with cinnamon, green apple lollipop, lime peel, and thyme finish. A rough riding Old Tom Gin for mixed drinks.
