You get a lot for the fee—drinks, explanation, humor. As the country’s only distillery worth the experience. Too bad you can’t buy the alcohol there though due to the laws.

You definitly must visit this place if you like whiskey and gin! The host Pàll was fantastic. He talked about the whole process of the production. Followed by a walk through the destillery and finished with whiskey and gin tasting. Once again worth every ISK!

Very young distillery but excellent quality and prize winning spirits. Our group tour was led by Paul who was highly entertaining as well as teaching us a bit about distilling. It’s very small so emphasis is on tastings rather than the tour. Worth a trip...More
