Iceland’s oldest brewery invites you on a fascinating journey through the flavours and quirky drinking culture of the country. Learn about local habits and traditions, and taste Icelandic drinks on this entertaining tour.

Enjoying a drink or two is not an unknown pastime to the island’s population. For more than a millennium, the Viking spirit has included the consumption of beer and mead – which you can taste during this interactive tour at the stylish headquarters of the country’s oldest brewery, Olgerdin.

Start by sampling the Icelandic version of mead, as brewed by the Vikings. Hear the background of the country’s prohibition era and taste the beer-substitute that Icelanders drank at the time. You are offered a shot of Brennivin, a form of schnapps often considered to be Iceland’s signature distilled beverage, produced in Olgerdin Brewery.

In addition to these, try such native favourites as Gull beer and a traditional Christmas drink, the Malt & Appelsin. You are certain to have a smile on your face on the way back to Reykjavík.
