A clean and environmentally responsible Vodka from Iceland is the definition of glacial soft.

Founded in 2005 by William Grant & Sons, Reyka Distillery is located in a costal Icelandic village called Borgarnes on a narrow peninsula about thirty miles north of the capital of Reykjavik. The town is so small that their master distiller — Pórõur Sigurõsson — also serves as the police chief… and the fire chief. The facility is 100% powered by environmentally-friendly geothermal power and utilizes natural glacial run-off water. Thus they call their Spirit the “world’s first green Vodka.” Notably, they use a copper Carter-head still, which makes us suspect that a Gin is in the works for the future. 

Reyka Vodka is distilled from a mash of wheat and barley. And as they famously claim, the water is pure glacial water that runs through a 4,000 year-old lava field and the final Spirit is filtered through volcanic rock, adding to its purity. They make the Vodka in small batches of two hundred and fifty-five cases — which is just a drop in the bucket for a large production facility.

Smartass Corner:
Reyka is derived from Iceland’s capital city — Reykjavik — which in turn comes from the old Norse words “reykr” meaning “smoke / smoky / steam” and “vik” meaning bay. Since the distillery is power by geothermal steam, this seems a fitting name.

The average life of a $50 bill in circulation is 55 months before it is replaced due to wear.
You won't impress the bartender by ordering Vodka-soda, but it's a good choice if you want to avoid unecessary sugar intake and make sure you stay hydrated when consuming alcohol.
Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.

For a potato-based Vodka, 12kg (26.5lbs) potatoes are needed to produce a single bottle.
Unlike its boozy brethren Bourbon and Scotch, Vodka can be made anywhere in the world. But it’s Eastern Europe that gets the credit for its birth. Just don’t ask Russia and Poland to get to the bottom of it—both argue that they masterminded the Spirit first.
Seems that Vodka is a lightweight—quite literally. This clear Spirit actually weighs less than water. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams, while the same amount of Vodka only clocks in at 953 grams.
It looks like potato chips and flavored Vodka are two things where the producers unleash their imagination. Bubble gum, fresh cut grass, pumpkin pie, marshmallow, and coconut water hardly begin to describe the many flavors of Vodka.
