Independent family-owned distiller William Grant & Sons has introduced Reyka Vodka, produced at the newly built distillery in Borgarnes, 100km north of Reykjavik in Iceland. Reyka is a premium vodka handcrafted in small batches using spring water very low in minerals, a two-stage lava rock filtration system and a Carter-Head still, more often used in gin production. The firm describes the drink as having a delicate texture that becomes fuller-bodied and lightly creamy with elegant, rounded aniseed and vanilla, a sweet-dry balance and a light spiciness, with a clean, lingering and subtly spiced finish.
Price: About £13
