The Orkney Gin Company draw inspiration from our islands rich culture, archaeology and traditions, our award winning gin takes a refreshingly modern twist on a traditional style, producing unique and distinctly Orcadian gin.
Beginning as a hobby, Orkney Gin’s recipes been perfected over years of practice. As a family run business, we pride ourselves on the high quality of our meticulously produced gin, using seven times distilled premium grain spirit and the finest botanicals from our islands and beyond.
The process requires ultra-small batches of spirit to be blended with carefully selected botanicals, repeatedly sampled and filtered before being bottled and labelled by hand, resulting in unique, smooth and delightful gins.
Our Johnsmas Gin is inspired by the long, clear days of an Orkney Summer where the sun barely sets behind the standing stones of the Ring of Brodgar. Fragrant, fresh and light, Johnsmas Gin is crafted using a variety of hand picked seasonal botanicals from our islands and beyond to capture the clean and refreshing floral notes of midsummer.
Traditionally marked by bonfires, festivals, and music, this time of year is steeped in traditional Orkney folklore.
The Mikkel Feast, or the Feast of St Michael was traditionally celebrated by Orcadians from the 29th of September to the 12th of October. This celebration marked the end of the harvest and the end of an Orkney summer. The tradition still exists today with each island hosting it’s own Harvest Home, a traditional meal and dance that lasts long into the night.
Bold, seasonal botanicals are used to capture the warming autumnal spirit of Mikkelmas in a spicy, silky smooth gin. As the sun sets into the Autumn sky’s this gin captures all the magic and autumnal colours.
