The first steps were taken in the summer of 2015, when a local artist and engineer’s son, the drummer in a heavy-metal band, was paid for a gig in a bottle of moonshine. The mother-son team then set about experimenting with infusing small samples with various local herbs and set about to find the perfect combination of wild herbs and berries to create a truly superb local spirit. Which is where the third member of the Hálogi team came in, historian Hjörtur Hjartarson who has been the chief taster of the company since its founding.
