This special edition was been created in collaboration with the SCAPA100 initiative with a percentage of the profits going to support the project. Distilled using a variety of botanicals including juniper, tarragon, cassia bark, lemon peel, chamomile flower heads, green pepper, lavender and mint. The botanicals create a lovely taste of juniper before developing to a spicy, peppery flavour that leads to a fresh lavender mint finish.
A family run craft distillery in the Parish of Deerness, the team led by Stuart and Adelle Brown 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.
London Dry Gin
London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.
Designed and built by Stuart, a former engineer, along with his wife Adelle and their family and friends, you’ll find a warm welcome at the Deerness Distillery. While the purpose built distillery is quite industrial from the outside, the open plan interior is a beautifully designed and functional space. The Deerness Distillery’s range of gins, alongside other spirits and liqueurs, is distilled in a traditional direct-fired copper pot still. There’s a large space for bottling, waxing and storage and the distillery also houses a small tasting bar area and shop, which features lots of orkney made gifts, plus an impressive selection of tonics.
