Water given by nature
Just like fossil fuels, water is a vital source that is slowly disappearing. Local springs and other drinking water sources have come increasingly dehydrated over the years. By following the traditions of the local population, we see it as our duty to harvest a small part of the detached icebergs to give a new destination to this beautifully pure water. We should use this pristine water that Mother Nature has given us before it melts away into the salty ocean.
“The harvesting of icebergs is carefully monitored by the Canadian Government.”
ICEBERG cares for the environment
The journey of icebergs has been studied for many years at the Centre of Cold Water Research in Canada. The primary focus for current research is to discover the correlation between melting icebergs and the environment. Recent studies from St Mary’s University in Nova Scotia, Canada suggest that too much fresh-water ice melting into the salt-water ocean is likely to have a negative impact on the environment. Long-term effects may include an alteration to the patterns of the Gulf Stream and eventual rising sea levels.
“ICEBERG is passionate to support and assist in research to preserve our precious Arctic ice shelves.”
By harvesting detached icebergs, ICEBERG is finding a new destination for this beautifully pure water. Comparatively, the small quantity of ice sourced for ICEBERG Water and Vodka is a literal ‘drop’ in the ocean. Let it be clear that ICEBERG is passionate to support and assist in research to preserve our precious Arctic ice shelves.
We get our main ingredient from nature. In order to return to society what we received from nature, we established the Falling Leaves foundation. For each bottle ICEBERG Water and Vodka we sell, we give clean drinking water to those who are deprived of it. We have selected partners who build clean water facilities in countries and communities that need it. We like to team up with organizations that also have a direct distribution model, no extra layers but a true focus on added value.
License To Harvest
ICEBERG Vodka is the only company with an active license to harvest a tiny fraction of the in total 1500 icebergs which are passing by each year.
The harvested ice melts at a natural ambient. It might take a little longer, but no extra energy sources are being used.
Bottled with Care
ICEBERG Vodka is bottled with care at Herman Jansen, Schiedam (The Netherlands). With the purest water from Canada and the very best alcohol.
The ICEBERG Vodka glass bottles are made to be recycled. We pack our bottles per 6 pieces in a carton, made of recycled paper.
ICEBERG Vodka always searches for the best ways of transport, to influence the impact on nature as less as possible and works with parties who are environmental conscious.
We combine our (sea)shipments to avoid unused space at trucks and / or containers.
