At Orkney Gin Company we hand craft our gin in order to retain the full flavour of our botanicals and ensure the highest quality product. Our bathtub style method involves blending a variety of the finest botanicals with seven times distilled premium grain spirit, a modern take on a traditional method.
The method requires ultra-small batches to be filtered, repeatedly sampled then carefully bottled
and labelled; creating three unique, seasonal gins with distinct flavours reflecting the islands we call home.
Johnsmas - meaning 'mid summer' in old Orcadian, is a floral and fragrant gin crafted using a variety of hand picked and seasonal botanicals that capture the clean and refreshing floral notes of an Orcadian summer.
Made to a traditional Old Tom style which originates in
the 18th century, Rhubarb Old Tom is a soft, lightly sweetened full strength rhubarb gin, made using botanicals which compliment Scotland's seasonal rhubarb.
Johannistag Navy Strength Old Tom
Johannistag is the UK's first Navy Strength Old Tom.
It marks the Centenary of the Scuttling of the German High Seas Fleet in Orkney's Scapa Flow. Our first batch of 500 bottles marking the date when the ships first entered Scapa Flow sold out within days.
The second and final batch of 500 marking the date the ships were Scuttled will be released in June 2019.
