THE ORIGINAL ICELANDIC SPIRIT

THE ORIGINAL ICELANDIC SPIRIT

THE DRINK

The secret to Brennivin, Iceland's signature spirit, is the balance between
the pure, soft, Icelandic water and the robust, savory, flavor of caraway.
While the precise origin of the recipe  is unknown, caraway is one of few
spices that grow wild in Iceland, despite the harsh climate.

THE ORIGINAL
ICELANDIC SPIRIT

Brennivín was first introduced in 1935, when prohibition in  Iceland was partially lifted. A black label was chosen in order for the product to look unappealing and limit demand. The label had  the opposite effect and Brennivín quickly became a popular drink. Today, the Brennivín label is a well-known symbol for Iceland’s signature drink – and of Iceland itself.

Brennivin delivers an inspiring kick for the progressive mixologist, is excellent paired with the rustic flavors of Nordic cuisine and of course, the perfect Rock’n'Roll shot. It is an ancient nordic tradition to simply let Brennivin choose the occasion for you!
