Our part of four enjoyed the tour of Eimverk Distillery. It is a very small building and it took a while to spot the entrance. Our guide, "Rock," was knowledgeable and droll. The alcohol was strong; a few sips of each beverage was plenty.

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.

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

Great tasting for so little money you can test EVERYTHING that is produced there.
