Icebergs naturally melt. This is an annual occurrence, happening each spring and has for thousands of years. Every year, a quantity equivalent to the annual amount of drinking water consumed in the world is lost to the oceans. The journey of icebergs has been studied for many years at the Center of Cold Water Research in Canada.
Recent studies from St. Mary’s University in Nova Scotia, Canada, suggests that too much freshwater 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.
Comparatively, the small quantities of ice sourced for Iceberg Vodka is literally a drop in the ocean and so Iceberg is passionate to assist in research to preserve our precious arctic ice shelves.
