The Private Reykjavik Microbrewery & Distillery Tour

The Private Reykjavik Microbrewery and Distillery tour in Iceland is a unique experience that allows visitors to learn about the process of brewing and distilling in Iceland.  

A comfortable car and an outstanding local driver guide will take you on this experience, so the only thing you need to take care of is indulging in the knowledge and drinks provided while on tour.

The tour starts with a visit to Malbygg Microbrewery, where guests will learn about the brewing history in Iceland, the brewing process, and the different types of beer produced at the brewery. Guests can then sample some of the best beers produced on-site.
 
Next or sometimes starts,  the tour moves on to the Eimverk distillery. This tour joins a shared experience, where guests will learn about the history of distilling in Iceland, the distillation process, and the different types of spirits produced at the distillery. Guests can also sample plenty of the Whiskey, and some other Spirits produced on-site.
 
Throughout the tour, guests will learn about the local ingredients used to make the spirits and Microbrews and gain insight into the unique challenges of distilling & brewing in Iceland’s harsh climate.
 
The tour is an excellent opportunity for beer and spirit enthusiasts to learn more about the local brewing and distilling scene in Iceland and to sample some of the unique and delicious products produced in the country.
 
After the tour has concluded and you have a happy buzz, your friendly driver guide will drop you off at your hotel or the next excellent bar if your soul tells you to do that.
 
Malbygg Microbrewery was established in 2017; Their focus has been on brewing beers they want to drink, but they are always open to experimenting and constantly trying to improve their beers.
They mostly brew hoppy beers but also kettle-soured beers, stouts, and wild/sour ales.
 
Eimverk is a family-operated distillery founded in 2009 to make premium Icelandic liquors strictly from local ingredients. We produce three spirits: Flóki, their single malt whisky; Vor, a pot-distilled gin; and Víti, a signature version of Icelandic Brennivín or black death.

Their whisky, Flóki, was the first of its kind in Iceland, handcrafted with four years of 163 trial distillations and maturation tests to ensure the perfect recipe.

They use their custom-made distillation equipment to extract the full flavor from the 100% Icelandic barley that they use and mature the whisky in new American oak casks. The result is a complex malt with a unique blend of characteristics found in Bourbon, Scotch, and Irish whiskies.

After your tour of both the distillery & microbrewery, your expert guide from Your Friend In Reykjavik will drop you off at your hotel or the next bar of choice.

Please keep in mind that even though this is a private tour with an expert guide from Your Friend In Reykjavik, you will join a shared experience and Whiskey tasting at Eimverk, but of course, your guide will be taking good care of you.  For the Microbrewery visit and tasting at Malbygg, you will have your private guide for your group
