First batch of 500 - Sold Out

Second batch of 500 - Sold Out

Johannistag Navy Strength Old Tom marks the centenary of the Scuttling of the German High Seas Fleet in Orkney's Scapa Flow. Only 1000 special edition bottles were released: 500 in November 2018, when the German Fleet first entered Scapa Flow 100 years ago, and 500 in June 2019, marking the date the ships were scuttled.

Johannistag is 57%abv, which makes it a 'Navy Strength' gin. The name is German, and translates to Mid Summer’s Day, or St John’s Day. The botanicals in Johannistag reflect Orkney's summer climate, with a smooth Old Tom style finish, lightly sweetened using Orcadian honey sourced in Shapinsay. 

A percentage of the profits have been donated to Orkney's RNLI, to find out more about our donations to Orkney's RNLI, please see our 'News' page.


The flavour of our gins may vary slightly from batch to batch, although we follow the same precise recipe. This is due to the natural variations in the botanicals used and we feel this adds to the character of our unique creations.
