A short drive away from downtown Reykjavík is the charming town of Garðabær where you'll find the Eimverk Distillery. Although people have known about the spirit they produce, few know that a visit to Eimverk is a possibility, making this tour a unique experience and a true hidden gem.
You will meet your professional and passionate distillers on site, and they will lead you through the factory and show you the range of equipment and techniques they use to create these delicious beverages. You will not only gain knowledge about the varieties and complexities of distilling spirits, but you’ll also have the chance to taste some of the finest and freshest spirits on the market
Eimverk is the only distillery in the country that produces spirit from 100% Icelandic barley, and it sources only local ingredients. You will be able to taste three of the distillery’s iconic drinks, Flóki (Icelandic whiskey), Vor (premium pot-boiled gin) and Víti (herb-infused, traditional Brennivín schnapps).
Each of these beverages come in different forms, offering a variety of flavours. As you taste, the distillers will point out aspects of your drink to watch out for such as transparency and colour.
Eimverk, a family run distillery, was founded in 2019. It took four years and 163 trial distillations to perfect the Flóki whiskey, and this hard work and dedication can be tasted in each, throat-warming sip.
