February Fun & A Little Contest - Answered

March 06, 2015 Joe S

UPDATE: The correct answer to the question of the cans below is Ora Beans. Ora is a very famous brand of canned beans in Iceland. Of course, we think opening up a can of "Airtail 2015" cocktails might be a little more fun than beans. Our mini-Thorrablot (the traditional Icelandic mid-winter celebration) in Seattle on the 21st of February at Rob Roy was a huge success, and we're pretty excited to get right back on the road for the Icelandic Association of Northern California's Thorrablot coming up on March 7th. Details here. Watch our blog or our Twitter feed @brennivinusa...

Brennivín in The NY Post & More

November 30, 2014 Joe S

In case you missed it, the NY Post did a roundup (here) of hard-to-find, international spirits now being poured in some of NYC's more adventurous bars and restaurants. Our good friends at Skal NYC made the list, with Brennivin of course. Speaking of NYC, the guys at Baby's All Right, in Williamsburg are now serving Brennivin. They're at 146 Broadway, right down the block from Peter Luger Steakhouse. Pretty obvious what we'll be doing on our next trip to Brooklyn! Portland bartender, blogger, and all around Aquavit enthusiast, Jacob Grier, included Brennivin in a recent post (here). We're looking forward...

Join us at the Atlas Arts Center in Washington DC this coming Thursday, the 29th of May, for the American premiere of Anna Thorvaldsdottir's Light of Air.  Thorvalsdottir has also designed an installation of metallic ornaments called Klakabönd, which translates as “a bind of ice”, created by Icelandic artist Svana Jósepsdóttir. And, of course, there will be Brennivin cocktails. Skal!
