Mikkelmas

The Story

The Mikkelfeast,

or the Feast of St Michael

was traditionally celebrated by Orcadians from

the 29th Sep - 12th Oct.

This celebration marked  the end of the harvest and the beginning of our long winter.

The tradition still exists today with many parishes hosting their

own Harvest Home, a traditional supper and dance that lasts long into the night.

Botanicals 

 As the sun sets into the Autumn skies, bold, seasonal botanicals are used  to capture the warming spirit of  Mikkelmas in a spicy, silky smooth gin.

 It is delicious served with

tonic water or ginger ale and 

garnished with a slice of orange. Personally we love it as the base of a hot toddy!
