Taste of Iceland

Cocktail class

Join mixologists from Reyka Vodka and Ólafsson Gin at The Betsy

Cheers to the best of Icelandic spirits!

Reyka Vodka's local representative Jamila Garcia will be on-site to talk about what goes into a bottle of Reyka Vodka. Hint: a lot of Iceland! Ólafsson Gin's brand ambassador Tóta and Betsy's in-house mixologist Arslan know their stuff and will shake up some tasty Iceland-inspired cocktails. Best of all, they will teach you hands-on how to make some too! DJ Hermigervill will welcome guests with his signature style, synth music, and vegan tape loops (he says that not us!) that will surely get you moving.

Signing up below is encouraged but this delicious class is a first-come, first-serve.

REYKA VODKA

Just about the cleanest, purest style of vodka we've come across. Iceland's first and only master distiller, Kristmar Olafsson, uses geothermal heat to distill this unique vodka. The water is from an untouched 4,000-year-old lava field that also provides the igneous rocks through which the finished spirit is filtered. It melts on your tongue like a snowflake.

Where to find Reyka Vodka

This is Reyka Vodka

Ólafsson Gin

Starts crisp and clean with its classic grain and juniper base, followed by complex floral and citrusy botanicals and hints of earthy spice after a mineral whisp of fresh, ocean air.

A nutty, angelica bitterness is softened by a delightfully creamy mouthfeel. Native arctic thyme, birch, and mountain moss wind their way through to a long, rounded, lingering finish.

With its naturally high pH and minerality, the lava-filtered Icelandic water, one of the purest, most crystal-clear waters on the planet, balances the gin with incredible smoothness and silky texture.

THE EXCELLENCE OF ÓLAFSSON GIN HAS BEEN INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED.
