Icelandic water used for ‘exceptionally pure’ Reyka Vodka Martini


Reyka Martini City Social

A Vodka Martini, served with an ice block made with a super-premium natural spring water from Iceland, is to be added to the menu at City Social in London throughout June.

The “exceptionally pure” cocktail has been devised in a partnership with Icelandic vodka Reyka and water brand Icelandic Glacial, sourced from Iceland’s legendary Ölfus Spring.

Stirred with blocks of ice made from the water, the Reyka Glacial Martini promises to be “the ultimate in crisp, pure flavour”. With just an added touch of atomised Lillet Blanc, it is garnished with a grapefruit twist.

It will be available from Wednesday (June 1) for a month at City Social, the bar and restaurant on the 24th floor of Tower 42 in the City of London. Each drink will be served with a bottle of Icelandic Glacial.

Reyka itself is distilled in Iceland, filtered through Icelandic lava rocks, and made with pure Icelandic arctic spring water.

Icelandic Glacial is bottled at source from Ölfus Spring, which was formed more than 5,000 years ago and is shielded from pollution by an impenetrable barrier of lava rock. The water features a naturally low mineral content and a naturally alkaline pH of 8.4.
