Sïku (see-koo), meaning “ice” in Greenlandic is ultra-premium vodka, uniquely blended with pure glacier ice which is up to 60,000 years old, from the Qalerallit Sermia Glacier in Greenland.
The finest grains are distilled five times resulting in a gluten-free spirit of unsurpassed quality. Sïku’s proprietary ice-blending process creates the only vodka in the world that transforms pristine glacier ice and ultra-premium alcohol directly to vodka without ever becoming water. Through a unique stirring process the ice and alcohol become liquid at –25˚C and naturally occurring vodka is born. The result of this incredible journey from glacier to glass..world-class vodka..perhaps the cleanest tasting vodka in the world.

Sïku (see-ku) meaning “ice” in Greenlandic is an ultra premium vodka. It is uniquely blended with pure crystal clear ice, which is up to 60,000 years old, from the Qalerallit Sermia Glacier in Greenland. After harvesting, the glacier ice is crushed and palletized ready for shipment aboard Royal Arctic Shipping lines to Aalborg, Denmark. It is then transported by reefer units to the distillery in the Netherlands. Sïku Glacier Ice Vodka is gluten free and is blended using a unique process whereby it becomes liquid at minus 25.9˚C. Crafted in small batches in the Netherlands, this surprisingly crisp vodka is distilled five times from the finest grains, creating an exceptionally clean, smooth finish. The glass bottle is fired three times at temperatures ranging up to 1148˚F over a seven-day time frame, to create a distinctive package that is sure to be prized by collectors. From the aqua-coloured base that creates the illusion of Greenland’s glacier ice, the virgin-glass bottle evokes the Northern Lights dancing across the Arctic skies.
Sïku Glacier Ice Vodka is the recipient of the prestigious Santé Gold Star Award from Santé, the Magazine for Restaurant Professionals. Sïku was also named “Best of the Best” at the Waldorf Astoria taste testing In New York City by Steinway Magazine. For more information about Sïku Glacier Ice Vodka please visit www.sikuvodka.com
