Find your perfect gin

You’ll find the Deerness Distillery situated on the ancient island of Orkneyjar. These days it’s better known as Orkney. Orkney compromises of approximately 70 islands, of which 20 are inhabited and have been home to people for over 8500 years. An area of outstanding beauty and ancient historical ties to the sea, and it’s from these ancient links of people and land to the sea where the team at Deerness Distillery took some of their inspiration for their Sea Glass Gin.

A family run craft distillery in the Parish of Deerness, the team led by Stuart and Adelle value friendship, tradition and cherish the community spirit that’s to be found on the island. When they were building the distillery, this community spirit was in abundance as family, friends and neighbours all turned up to lend a helping hand. Everyone involved knew they were helping to create something authentic for the island.
