A small but fun distillery. Enjoyed the opportunity to taste 9 (NINE) different products with a story about each product. They also sell shot glasses and t-shirts, nice quality.

We had a great time! Took my husband for his 50th birthday. Plenty of whiskey and education and fun! Money well-spent!

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!
