Orkney Gin Company

Orkney, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Gary and Andrea, Orcadians and husband and wife, started making homemade gin as a Christmas gift for family and friends. Realising how much they enjoyed the process and going by the feedback they received from family and friends, The Orkney Gin Company was established.

When setting up the business. Gary and Andrea knew they wanted to create something truly original but with a sense of heritage and connection to the surrounding land. They opted for the cold-compounding method for creating their gins which is very time consuming. They believe this provides more opportunity to mange the quality and flavours being created during the distillation. The couple are currently putting the finishing touches to their new purpose built distillery on the island where they will continue to distill, bottle and label each bottle by hand.

Johnsmas Gin presented in a reusable stoneware bottle 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 handpicked seasonal botanicals from the 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.

Mikkelmas Gin

Mikkelmas Gin presented in a reusable stoneware bottle is inspired by The Mikkel Feast, or the Feast of St Michael, traditionally celebrated by Orcadians from 29th September to 12th October. This celebration marks the end of the harvest and summer. The tradition still exists today with most parishes still hosting their 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.
