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.
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!
