Icelandic drinks at the Rangá Bar

Iceland’s extreme weather conditions and dark winter months often call for a little ‘reviver’. After many chilly hours working outdoors or traveling long distances across the challenging terrain, Icelanders like nothing better than a warming pick-me-up.

Our guests are welcome to sample Icelandic drinks at the Rangá Bar. Furthermore, Hotel Rangá’s expert bartenders serve a variety of Icelandic liquors, beers and traditional cocktails.

Icelandic Liquor, Beer and Cocktails

There are a long list of intriguing Icelandic liquors and cocktails to try at the Rangá Bar. In fact, many draw their character and flavor from natural plants and traditional ingredients. These delightful flavors include local birch trees, wild angelica and arctic thyme.

However, some of these intriguing tipples pack a mighty Viking strength punch. As a result, it might be a good idea to make sure you have a soft moss-covered landing nearby. Perhaps one of Hotel Rangá’s incredibly comfortable beds might do the trick.

Brennivín: First, we start with one of Iceland’s most popular liquors. Brennivín is an unsweetened schnapps seasoned with caraway, cumin, and wild angelica. What’s more, Brennivín has a very distinct taste and is normally a staggering 80 proof.

Birkir: Birch schnapps, 35% ABV, it has an earthy aroma with a slightly bitter and herbal taste.

Brenyolver: A high-quality Icelandic gin with a unique taste of Arctic thyme, angelica seeds and the more traditional juniper berries.

Topas: Liquor made with a mixture of herbs and licorice. Therefore, this is a very sweet, fortified drink that also has a cough linctus flavour.

Reyka Vodka: The water used to make Reyka comes from a 4,000-year-old lava field. What’s more, its taste is smooth and warm with just a touch of vanilla.

Vísi Gísli: A smooth aquavit made from pure Icelandic spring water, dill, caraway, coriander, lime peel, and timian.
