Descripition: Reyka is an ancient Icelandic word for "steam" or "smoke." The entire operation is run by the abundant geothermal heat of the land, in the shadows of the majestic Mt. Hafnarfjall. The key to its superior smoothness is glacial water sourced from Grabok Spring, which runs through a 4,000-year-old lava field. The rock naturally filters the water, resulting in some of the purest water on Earth. Researchers that have tested these waters found zero impurities. Produced in small batches, Reyka is distilled in a Carter-Head still. One of only a few stills of its kind in the world, the copper helps retain the vodka's cleanliness. Unlike so many other vodkas that promote countless distillations, there is no need for more than one trip through this still. As a finishing touch, the vodka is filtered through the same lava rock that purifies the water.
VODKA DEFINITION: A neutral spirit distilled and filtered. Traditionally made by the distillation of fermented cereal grains - corn, rye, wheat or sorghum- and occasionally from potatoes (sugar beets and apples can also be used, though not as common).
