FLÓKI – THE ICELANDIC WHISKY SAGA
We are a family-run distillery founded in 2009, dedicated to making premium Icelandic spirits from 100% local ingredients: Flóki, our Single Malt Whisky; Vor, our Icelandic premium gin; and Víti our premium Icelandic Brennivín, made using locally grown Icelandic barley.
Flóki is handcrafted and produced from 100% Icelandic barley by Eimverk Distillery. It took 4 years and 163 trial distillations as well as aging and maturation testes to perfect the Flóki recipe. Production started in 2013, and sales of Eimverks first product, Vor gin, took place in 2014.
100% ICELANDIC BARLEY
The Icelandic barley is a hardy strain selected to thrive during the short, intense Icelandic summer. It imparts a sweet bready maltiness and complex spice notes on our spirit.
Our journey started with the goal to make great Icelandic whisky, as such we took great care and time in perfecting the recipe, and we are still to this day dedicated to making each and every cask better than the last one. Flóki is Iceland’s first and only whisky and our sheep-dung-smoked reserve is the first of its kind in the world.
HAND CRAFTED – GRAIN TO GLASS
We take pride in hand crafting Floki. From growing our own barley to designing and building our own pot stills, every step is important to us for delivering the best possible spirit.
100% Icelandic locally grown barley. Named after one of Icelands first explorers, Hrafna-Flóki (Flóki of the ravens).
Carefully distilled using our custom made distillation equipment to extract the full flavor of the barley and then matured in new wood american oak barrels.
Flóki is a complex and unique malt with a blend of characteristics you´d expect in Bourbon, Irish Whisky and Scottish Highland Whiskys.
Icelandic Young Malt is available at the Duty Free Store in Iceland, most local liqueur stores in Iceland as well as through our distributors world wide.
