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!

The whole experience was casual as we joined a group of about 10 others guests. There were over 5+ samples of amazing whiskey, gin and brennivín. It was intimate and learning about the roots of this small batch distillery was so inspiring and heart felt. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to do something off the beaten path and especially anyone who loves to drink!

The master distiller gave us our tour and it was outstsnding!! The 1 1/2 was fun, causal, and educational.We have done distillary tours before and this was by far the best one! You got 6 tastings and the distiller was extremly knowledgable and layed back. Its a must see when vising iceland...its the only distillary in the country!

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 out. Expect quirky and modern, nothing like Scots whisky society!
