His massive stature, superhuman strength and terrifying Game of Thrones character may make Hafþór Björnsson seem intimidating, but it turns out the actor, better known as “The Mountain,” is a softy at heart.
In honor of Iceland’s National Women’s Day, the actor and professional strongman recently handed out mini bottles of his own Icelandic Mountain Vodka, along with tiny roses, to women of all ages throughout the Kringlan mall in Iceland.

Unsurprisingly, his generous gestures were well-received—who doesn’t love flowers and free booze? Hafþór also gave out hugs and took photos with the women, proving that, while he absolutely could explode a person’s head with his bare hands, he’s actually a gentleman.
While the women certainly left the mall with a great story and a pretty flower, they also took home a seriously tasty bottle of booze. Icelandic Mountain Vodka was named one of the best new vodkas of 2016 by Supercall, thanks to its sweet aroma, crisp, cooling mouthfeel and kick as strong as The Mountain himself. Of course, it probably tastes even better after a hug from Hafþór.
