How is Icelandic Vodka Made?
Reyka Vodka is the first Icelandic vodka ever made and the only Icelandic vodka sold in the United States. Reyka, meaning “steam” or “smoke” in Icelandic, is made in small batches using geothermal energy.
The most important component of Reyka is the water used. Iceland has some of the purest water in the world which goes into Reyka Vodka, ensuring a clean, fresh taste. The water in Reyka is not treated with traditional filtration systems - instead, the water runs through lava rocks, which filter it naturally. All impurities remain in the lava rocks, and the resulting water is delicious and free of impurities.
