Iceberg Vodka is a vodka produced by the Canadian Iceberg Vodka Corporation. The vodka is produced using water from icebergs harvested off the coast of Newfoundland blended with neutral grain alcohol from peaches and cream corn from Ontario. Iceberg's product line includes vodka, gin, rum, and now flavoured vodka, due to be available in March of 2014. It is the only national premium vodka brand that is fully owned and produced in Canada.[1] [2] [3] [4]

History[edit]

The Canadian Iceberg Vodka Corporation was founded in 1994, in Toronto, and began harvesting water from icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland in 1995. In 2013, Iceberg added three kinds of flavoured vodka to their product line: cucumber, crème brûlée, and chocolate mint. [2] [4]

In 1998, the Beverage Tasting Institute gave Iceberg a 'superlative' score of 94 out of 100, ranking it second behind the acclaimed Grey Goose in a blind taste test of the world's best vodkas.[citation needed]
