About Icelandic Spirits

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.
