GREENLAND ICE CAP WATER & ISFJORD
"Water as it should be"
The extreme high quality of the Greenland Ice Cap Water clearly shows in the TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) below 5 ppm. This is the absolutely lowest TDS for any water in the World. ISFJORD is the only spirit company in the world to use this unique water in the production. Harvesting the icebergs in the sea is difficult and requires a special technique, and once the icebergs is loaded in water container the ice will melt naturally in 4 - 5 weeks before bottling. We have been using the technique in the harvesting of the icebergs for many years and the icebergs are still floating naturally out into the sea, and are still melting. How ever the global heating has speeded up the melting af the ice in Greenland, and is very clear for us when we look at ice fiords along the shore form south to north, that we have to change in the way we live in the world today and ISFJORD also have to look at other solutions in the future production of the spirit.
“Think Different” in the future
It is clear for ISFJORD that global warming and the fast melting of the ice from the Greenland Icecap is a hugh problem, the long transport of the water from Greenland to Denmark is also an issue that we have to calculate in the future. All this will have an influence on the still growing carbon problem in the world. ISFJORD has been working over the past years to change the use of the water in the products to meet this challenge. It has become more and more common to use local companies when companies are choosing suppliers for the production. We have made an investment in a water purification facility to produce the iceberg water and perfectly match the water profile from the Greenland Icebergs. We are stil using the Greenland water in the products, but we are replacing part of the water with the water from our new water facility. This water manufacturing technique that has become available in the last years will help us to produce ISFJORD products in a much better way to the environment and will also be much more carbon neutral and will keep the same unique smoothness and taste that is so characteristics to ISFJORD products.
We will all ways be looking for the best way to keep the high quality in our products, and one of the most important issues to keep the smoothness and balanced taste, is the iceberg water profile.
