SHARE IN THE SPIRIT OF DISCOVERY !

OUR FIRST PRODUCT, ÓLAFSSON GIN,
WAS CREATED TO HONOR EGGERT ÓLFASSON, ICELAND’S MOST LOVED 18TH CENTURY EXPLORER AND GUARDIAN OF OUR NATIVE CULTURE.

Leaving no moss-covered rock unturned or strange farming ritual unexamined, Eggert Ólafsson spent five years exploring the length and breadth of the country’s diverse regions and its people. From thundering waterfalls and volcanoes to geysers and glaciers, he clambered across untamed tundra and met as many (or few, in the case of Iceland!) people as he could. And in 1772, he published the full account of his scientific expedition and cultural research trip he conducted between 1752 and 1757 in the Ferðabók, known as Travels in Iceland in English.

OUR AIM WITH ÓLAFSSON GIN WAS TO CAPTURE THE PURITY AND BEAUTIFUL FRESHNESS OF ICELANDIC NATURE.

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 an incredible smoothness and silky texture.

THE EXCELLENCE OF ÓLAFSSON GIN HAS BEEN INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED.
