Reyka Vodka - Iceland’s Award-Winning Vodka Is Now Available in South Africa.


Living in a place like Iceland, gives one an interesting view of the world. It’s a beautiful place, but it’s also rugged and provocative. It requires its people to live creatively and take an inventive approach. And so when it comes to making vodka, Reyka followed this path. You can see it in their unique distillation method and innovative process. And you can surely taste it in the distinctive flavour of Reyka’s award-winning vodka.


A product of Borganes, a small village steeped in Viking history, Reyka Vodka is hand crafted in preciously small batches in Iceland’s first vodka distillery.  Hailing from a land of fire and ice, Reyka makes the most of Iceland’s resources – using nearby glacier spring water and lava rocks as a natural filtration system.   On top of that, the distillery is also powered by geo-thermal energy from nearby hot springs. This gives every drop of Reyka its smooth taste and silky finish.

Reyka’s hand crafted process takes about 6 hours to produce a small batch of only 1,000 litres of vodka, using one of the only Carter-Head Stills in the world - and the only one that is used to make vodka. This precious spirit is then analysed by the Master Distiller to ensure each and every bottle retains the highest of high quality. 


Reyka made its debut in Iceland in 2005, when William Grant and Sons set out to make the cleanest and smoothest vodka in the world.  It has developed an exceptional taste reputation internationally; in 2011 Reyka was awarded the Vodka Trophy at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) and in 2013, the Gold Medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and ‘Very good—Strong recommendation’ at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

With a taste described as exceptionally smooth and rounded with a soft natural sweetness and a slight hint of wild fruits, Reyka Vodka is now available at leading liquor stores. Bottled at 43% ABV, RRSP R299.95
