And fields of lava rock and towering waterfalls of spring water. Rugged and beautiful. The Reyka distillery – Iceland’s first distillery – is located in Borgarnes, Iceland. For those unfamiliar with Icelandic, that’s pronounced Bor-gan-ess.
Located 74km outside of Reykjavik, this coastal village is removed from industrial life and surrounded by wonderful natural resources. To help paint a picture of how untouched the resources are here, the CO2 levels in Borgarnes are actually falling. The air is really that clean.
With bountiful, crisp arctic waters and abundant lava rocks at our disposal, we can’t help but want to give the world a little taste of what we experience every day in Iceland. That’s why we created Reyka. It’s not just made in Iceland. It’s made of the things that make this island unlike any other place in the world, from our breathtaking landscapes to our creative spirit.
