A refreshing caraway based Scandinavian Spirit
Orkney Gin Company is a multi award-winning family run business based in Orkney, a stunning set of Islands off the north coast of Scotland. Most people know us as Orkney Gin Company, but we also trade as Orkney Spirits Limited. We have recently branched out from the gin world into spirit making, and have lovingly created Orkney Akvavit - Scotland's first Akvavit.
The bright botanicals found growing in the wild environment which surrounds us, Orkney's rich history and folklore and our passion to create something totally unique have formed the concept, taste and look behind all of our Multi-award winning hand-made spirits.
