Reykjavik: Eimverk Distillery Tour with Tasting

1. Reykjavik: Eimverk Distillery Tour with Tasting

The tour begins with an introduction to the distillery and a welcome drink. Following the introduction, listen to your guide reflect upon the history of whiskey in Iceland and how it came to be produced at Eimverk distillery. Guests are encouraged to participate with questions, so don’t be afraid to interact if there’s something you want to know. After you’ve learned a bit about the history of the distillery, it’s time for the tasting to start. As you go through the products, your guide will explain and reminisce everything from the initial thought process to the current state of development of Eimverk’s spirits. When the first half of the tasting is over, head towards the distillery’s production facility. Learn about the steps of the process right from the beginning of the barley harvesting, to the delicious glass of liquor at the end. Take some photos of the fascinating production area, and then head back to the tasting room for the second half of the sampling. As you taste the spirits, listen to your guide share interesting stories and explanations about the drinks, and mingle with the other guests on the tour.

Our guide was very informative and entertaining. We could taste as much as we liked and there were many options of liquors to taste. In addition, we learned about the distilling process in Iceland. There were only 7 people in our tour and we received lots of personal attention. The distillery is a bit far from downtown Reykjavík and the taxi fare is about 40 US dollars one way. Overall we are glad we booked this tour!

Definitely worth every penny, the host was very informative and great fun. The samples were delicious & we stocked up for the way home, the gin is definitely one of my new favourite tipples :)

This was so much fun! Definitely eat something before you go there are so many samples to try! They talked about the history of the distillery and also cool bits of information about Iceland.

Great experience and worth the money! Very personable tour guide and you get to try very high quality gin, whiskey and traditional Icelandic drinks.

We had a wonderful time at eimverk distillery. Very educational. Good stories. Fantastic samples of gin, brennvin and whiskies!
