Deerness Distillery Tasting Rooms

Orkney’s first gin and vodka tasting rooms open.

Published: 2nd May 2018

Deerness Distillery have officially opened their new tasting rooms at their distillery on the island of Orkney. Situated in the beautiful Parish of Deerness, on the east mainland of Orkney, an archipelago off the north-eastern coast of Scotland, Stuart and Adelle Brown, the founders of Deerness Distillery have spent the last 12 months designing and building this new addition to their distillery.

The new tasting room provides a warm and cosy place to settle down and sample their Sea Glass Gin and Into the Wild Vodka, both award winning spirits, having been awarded silver medals at the Global Luxury Spirit Masters competition in 2017.

Both spirits are made by hand in the distillery using the finest, local, hand picked Orcadian botanicals. You’ll have the opportunity to sit and sample these spirits and learn more about the distilling process, gain a better understanding of each botanical and its place on the island and its flavour profile. 

The Deerness Distillery also features a shop, which not only stocks a vast and wide selection of premium tonics and mixers, but you’ll also find some of the very best Orcadian and island crafted gifts including Orkney Crystal, Deerness Distillery branded homeware goods and more unique crafted pieces.

The distillery and tasting rooms are now welcoming visitors and locals for tours and tastings, please check in advance for opening times.
