Birch Liqueur & Schnapps
Don't Miss Icelandic Birch LiqueurThe Icelandic birch liqueur and schnapps called Bjork (which means birch in Icelandic) is the best spirit available in Iceland.
While other options such as Brennivin (also called black death, for a reason) are notorious for the hangover you'll have the next day, Bjork is velvety and earthy, the very embodiment of Iceland itself.
The bottles make the perfect gift and are sold throughout Iceland; they even include a genuine birch twig inside. The spirit itself is available in virtually every bar in Reykjavik.
