Black Death Vodka is triple distilled from French Sugar Beet. It has won a multitude of accolades in International Competitions from 1987 to 2015 including Gold Medals in the prestigious Inter-national Wine and Spirit Competition of London and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Black Death Vodka was awarded the “World’s Best White Spirit” Trophy at the 1993 International Wine and Spirit Competition. We at Black Death believe this product to be the very best of its type anywhere and urge you to try it for yourself, straight up, ice-cold and with or without a mixer. Please show courtesy to your fellow drinkers. Respect is not an inherited right, it is earned by how you behave.
n 1906, in Siglunes in the North of Iceland, the ancestors of Valgeir T. Sigurðsson fished, raised livestock, and traded with passing boats. To stay warm on cold winter nights the family would drink the “Moonshine” they distilled which soon became a favorite of visiting sailors. This popular “Moonshine” would eventually after much refinement deliver the recipe for Black Death Vodka. Valgeir T. Sigurðsson, a grandson of the original Sigurðsson Distilling Family relocated to Luxembourg in 1975 where he would eventually sell Black Death Vodka in his bar, The Cockpit Inn. In 1987 Black Death Vodka won it’s first Gold Medal at the International Wine and Spirit Competition of London. These days Valgier T. Sigurðsson lives in Siglufjordur, Iceland in the same fjord where the Black Death Vodka tradition began. The home in which the “Moonshine” was first made still stands as gloriously as the day it was built over 100 years ago. The Sigurðsson Family are still in the hospitality and alcohol beverage production business. The rest as they say, is history.
