The Story

Our multi award winning Johnsmas Gin 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.


'Johnsmas', meaning 'midsummer' in Old Orcadian was traditionally marked  by bonfires, festivals, and music. This time of year is steeped in Orkney folklore.



Johnsmas is a floral

and fragrant gin hand crafted using a variety of seasonal botanicals that capture the clean and refreshing floral notes of midsummer. 

We love our Johnsmas in a tall glass with tonic on the long summer nights, or for the more adventurous - use in your favourite cocktails!
