SO YOU WANT TO OWN A BIG BARREL OF WHISKY?
The ultimate goal of Thoran is to produce a premium, single malt whisky, made using Icelandic water and organically grown Icelandic barley. But we also want to make other spirits, make friends and hopefully... make a profit.
Stop throwing away your hard earned money on things like pet food and gym memberships, and start buying stuff that'll actually make you happy. Buy a cask of whisky. Do it. Do it now.
Have you always wanted to contribute in establishing a whisky distillery in Iceland, but not sure how to do it? No problem, John Boblem. We're gonna tell you how. It's easier than you think.
Wait! What?! We’re making more than just whisky? We sure are. Want try some un-aged grain spirit flavored with Icelandic herbs and served in a glass made out of volcanic rock? We've got you covered.
In the past few years many new spirits manufacturers have risen in Iceland, and right now the future of Icelandic spirits is as exciting as it is bright. We want to create a photo journal documenting our own entry into this market, giving you the chance to follow our progress, see what we're up to and what we're gonna do next. Enjoy these 'behind the scenes' photos and be sure to check in every now and then for more.
Each day the Þoran project progresses further and the dream of Icelandic whisky becomes more tangible. We'll be posting updates on our development, both on this site and on our Twitter account.
Our team is comprised of three like-minded individuals, each bringing something unique to the table. Our combined skill set includes marketing, graphic design, microbiology, brewing, economics, packaging design, engineering, team building and product development. Plus, Bergþóra makes a mean lasagna.
The Þoran project has become a small, global community. People from all over the world have been sending us emails, telling us how excited they are about the prospect of Icelandic whisky and asking how they can participate.
Some of them want to write articles about the project, a few are hoping to get first dibs on a cask but most people just want to wish us good luck. These people are our global ambassadors and vital members of our team.
We really want to hear from you, so leave us a message and we promise to get back to you as soon as possible.
