The Vacuum Distillation Process

  • Vacuum distilled
    in Iceland
  • Distilled using the
    fiery pits of earth

Efficiency

Much like in hell, we use heat to purify. But the process is more delicate than just plain heat.

By purifying Helvíti at 45˚C, we bring out the most sinful smoothness a human can taste. This distillation method is performed under reduced pressure, which lowers the boiling point of most liquids and gives us the most sinfully smooth Icelandic vodka. As with other distillation methods, this technique separates compounds based on differences in boiling points. The product is then purified with geothermal energy and Icelandic Spring Water.

It‘s long been said that the entrance to hell is through the crater of the notorious volcano Hekla

The Legend of Mount Hekla the Volcano

Why Helvíti?

Mount Hekla erupting in 1947

Hell may quite literally be on our doorstep. The legend of centuries claims that a volcano in South Iceland called Hekla was the gateway to Hell, or even Hell itself. Bishops and clerks all around Europe even used the volcanic activity in Iceland, and especially of Hekla, as proof that Satan himself lived underneath our land.

Old tales tell of the journeys of condemned souls, traveling through Hekla’s crater on their way to Hell. Others say that witches met with the devil on the peak. True or not, Hekla has been compared with Brocken and Vesuvius, and folks once believed that each was a gateway down to the netherworld.

Through the centuries, Hekla achieved renown of almost mythical proportions. So much so, that when a German cartographer of the 16th century drew a new marine map of the Nordic countries, Iceland showed only one proper name: Hekl’ berg (Hekla).

Hekla’s notoriety continued through the next three centuries, the volcano appearing as a symbolic entity in the works of several European authors.

The Entrance to hell Is through the crater of the notorious volcano Hekla

This long known fact makes Iceland the natural source of the most sinfully smooth vodka in the world.
