Celebrate Brennivin’s 80th Anniversary!
Get your limited edition bottle of Brennivin before it’s too late!
For its 80th anniversary, Brennivin is releasing 1,200 special edition bottles of Iceland’s signature aquavit. The 80th Anniversary Brennivin was aged for one year in a combination of new charred American white oak barrels, used bourbon barrels and Islay whisky casks. "The result is a deliciously, smooth spirit which can be enjoyed on its own," said Canny Candi in a recent holiday review of the aquavit. Click here to get your bottle before they're all gone!
