ABOUT REYKA VODKA

Reyka is distilled in the village of Borgarnes, Iceland, in one of the rarest stills in the world. The Carter-Head Still, one of only six in existence, is the best way to remove impurities due to its high level of copper, resulting in the smooth taste of Reyka.

Reyka Vodka is a preciously small batch vodka made in Iceland, hand crafted using lava rock filtration, arctic spring water & geo-thermal energy. Skal!
