On this dreary depressing day we have some great news to put a smile on your face. Strong Island are glad to welcome the return of 101 Reykjavík. They return in form of an online shop offering some of the countries finest exports which can be found at www.101reykjavik.co.uk.
Back in 2014 Chris and Lisa Whitear opened Southsea’s very own Icelandic kaffibar. They were able to provide honest food and drinks in a friendly setting that perfectly encapsulated the unique spirit of Iceland’s capital. Sadly earlier this year the premises was no longer available and they were forced to close the doors.
Chris and Lisa are now offering a range of Icelandic delights delivered to your door. Beverages available include Brennivín (known locally as The Black Death), Crowberry Liqueur and Björk Liqueur. There are also some fantastic craft beers available such as their own 101 Reykjavík dark beer with Cocoa and Icelandic seaweed, the liquorice-esque Northern Lights as well as a few lines from Borg Brewery and the award winning Gull lager.
Products available are not limited to food and beverages, you can pick yourself up a copy of Iceland’s finest musical exports such as LP’s from the likes of Sigur Rós, Björk and Ólafur Arnalds.
We hope that we will be able to see them returning to a local venue in the near future.
