Reyka Vodka & Iceland Airwaves 2013
The midnight sun has set on internationally acclaimed, Iceland Airwaves 2013, one of the biggest indie music festivals in the world, and festival goers are fondly recalling their favorite experiences – from the music festival that electrified the entire city to some seriously good cocktails made by festival sponsor Reyka Vodka.
This year’s unofficial stars: the members of Caveman, who unlike the rest of the festival’s line-up were handpicked by Reyka due to their independent spirit inspiring the brand. The band was seemingly omnipresent throughout Reykjavik, playing their official shows at Art Museum and Bar 11, and popping up guerrilla-style at Kvosin, festival epicenter Kex, and for a surprise concert in an Icelandic cave! Furthermore, Caveman and two super-fans, were hand-selected by Reyka and Airwaves to land this trip of a lifetime and to see the homeland of this small-batch craft vodka.
Reyka vodka is hand crafted in Borgarnes, Iceland and is made with pure Icelandic spring water and filtered through lava rocks. At the festival, Reyka’s signature sip, The Glacial Serve, was served with ice that was chipped off an actual glacier. This unique cocktail was a call to Reyka’s dedication to Iceland’s geography in distillation- in this case, naturally filtered glacial spring water that lends an unparalleled purity and clean flavor to Iceland’s own small batch vodka.
