A ghost from Icelandic folklore, who did not leave the world of the living after his death because of a passionate love for alcohol.

In Icelandic folklore, a fairly popular ghost is a draug, which has its own nickname. It belongs to the category of the dead, revived of their own free will (without a witchcraft call) and called in Icelandic by the word "afturganga" (literally, "returned from the other world" - from the verb "ganga aftur").

Brennivínsdraugurinn is the original Icelandic name for the ghost of Vinnik.
