Proof66 Notes

Reykjavik Crowberry liqueur is made in Iceland from wild-harvested "crowberries." The crowberry, or empetrum is (according to various sources) a dark purple berry growing in poor, rocky, and acidic soils especially in northern climates. It is used both for food and as a natural dye. We guess it can dimly be compared to creme de cassis (French black currant) and similar tart berry liqueurs in cocktails.

64° Reykjavik Distillery declares itself Iceland's first "micro distillery" and specializes in wild-harvest berries and botanicals for its spirit's flavors. The name comes presumably from the 64th parallel along the northern hemisphere upon which the country Iceland lies.

Community Notes

64˚ Reykjavik Distillery, the producer of this Crowberry-flavoured liqueur, notes that, "Crowberry (Empetrum nigrum) is a shiny black berry found in subarctic climates, their typical habitat is on moorlands, tundra and in spruce forests. Crowberries grow all over Iceland, ripening from late July. The berries have a bitter and fresh taste."

The only bottle size available is 200 ml, which clocks in 21% ABV, and contain crowberries and sugar with no preservatives. The manufacturer notes that their Crowberry liqueur won a silver medal (in the "liqueur, fruit" category) at the International Spirit Awards in 2011.
