Brennivin Aquavit (40% abv)



The secret to Brennivin, Iceland’s signature spirit, is the balance between the pure, soft, Icelandic water and the robust, savory, flavor of caraway. While the precise origin of the recipe is unknown, caraway is one of few spices that grow wild in Iceland, despite the harsh climate.

Brennivín was first introduced in 1935, when prohibition in Iceland was partially lifted. A black label was chosen in order for the product to look unappealing and limit demand. The label had the opposite effect and Brennivín quickly became a popular drink. Today, the Brennivín label is a well-known symbol for Iceland’s signature drink – and of Iceland itself.
