An event taking place at The Oast House in Manchester will see guests plunging into ice baths for a chance to win a trip to Iceland – as well as sipping on cocktails and cosying around fire pits. 

Icelandic vodka brand Reyka Vodka will be transforming the popular Spinningfields bar into the Fire and Ice Oasis, an homage to Iceland, which is known as the land of fire and ice. 

They want to give Mancs a chance to experience the magic of this iconic island through music, cocktails, food and ice baths. 

Taking place between 9 and 10 September, the Fire and Ice Oasis is going to be scratching that Scandi itch for all of us who’ve always had a trip to Iceland at the top of our bucket list. 

Reyka Vodka wants to showcase the wonder of the country’s culture at one of Manchester’s landmark venues. 


Anyone who braves the ice baths this weekend – solo or with a friend – will be entered into a competition to win a trip to Iceland.

And to reward you for your efforts, everyone will also receive a goodie bag and a free cocktail. 


You can then warm yourself beside the fire pit for the evening as the sun sets over the city. 

Reyka Vodka itself has its roots firmly planted in Iceland – it’s made with glacier water, in a distillery that’s powered by geo-thermal energy from volcanoes. They even filter the spirit through volcanic lava rock. 

Reyka Vodka wants to encourage people to get back to nature with their Elemental Escapes – so you can expect the quirky brand to challenge you to take on further adventures like wild swimming to caving. 


They aim to make the world more like Iceland through their values, characteristics and rich story. 

A Taste of Iceland at the Fire and Ice Oasis at the Oast House will take place between 12pm and 1am on Saturday 9 September, and 12pm to 11pm on Sunday 10 September, with ice baths open roughly 12pm to 7pm each day.

Reyka Vodka is 18+. Please drink responsibly.
