We are proud that our handcrafted ethos flows throughout our entire process; from the original eye catching lino cut labels and creating our recipes to the distilling, bottling and labelling of our artisan drinks.

Came across Deerness Distillery while visiting Orkney and have been getting their products off and on ever since. For this year I purchased some gift items and a special edition bottle of gin for Christmas. Delivery was swift and secure with everything arriving intact. The Orchadian Moon Marshmallows are full of flavour and generous - If you have never tried Orchadian Moon Coffee Liqueur then you have missed one of the most amazing coffee drinks ever. The marshmallows are amazing too and great for sharing. The Limited Edition 2023 Gin - we purchased bottle 32 of 200 - well this is a subtly flavoured gin with tones of lemon, lime and tarragon but an unmistakable juniper element simply lets it remain a Gin - BUT a very special gin. We are really happy with our purchases and of course at the next opportunity or visit to Orkney we will be buying more. Keep up the amazing excellent work Stuart and Adelle - we really appreciate it and love the fact it gets the far North of Scotland on the map. Cheers!

The place is amazing! The story - and especially the gin 😊 We have worked our way through the range and now very happy to support the distillery by buying Christmas gifts - some lovely small bottle and hamper offerings - for friends and family. Highly recommended!

Five star service .. what more can I say! Ordered the Orcadian Moon Coffee Liqueur as a gift for Scottish family members living in Kent. The bottle arrived within 48 hours, perfectly packaged .. and with an unexpected wee treat (bar of Orkney fudge.) Many thanks, highly recommended business. Sue

Just got my order today, & am so happy. Perfectly packages with added bonus of an edible gift. This is lovely smooth gin, tastes perfect. I am a sucker for small things so this time I've ordered the 20 cl bottles. Will be ordering more for Xmas presents. Thank you Deerness. 😁

Brilliant distillery, one of the best I've ever been too. Great location, very scenic views over the water. Lovely space, great inside and a very nice place to have a drink for the tour. And that's not to mention the booze... Everything they make is incredible, blind taste their Seagrass gin and vodka against storebrands and you will absolutely be able to taste the difference, every time. They make Beefeater taste like white spirits! Well worth a tour

In my recent visit to Orkney from the USA, I tasted Sea Glass gin and it is by far the loveliest, most fragrant, smooth gin I've ever had! I ordered a bottle to send to my Glaswegian hosts who also loved it, and now I'm ordering one for myself. The best!

Love all the gins from the Deerness distillery so much that I have signed up for their subscription service. I'm currently half way through a bottle of Scuttled Gin and it is fabulous 😍 next stop Sea Glass! Thanks Stuart and Adele x

Our Awards

Deerness Distillery Awards

We are so proud of the awards we have received since we launched our signature gin ‘Sea Glass Gin’ and the most Northerly vodka ‘Into The Wild Vodka’ in the Spring of 2017.  Why not experience them for yourself!

Local and Ethical

Situated off the north coast of Scotland the Orkney Islands with their rugged cliffs sit dramatically in the (occasionally!) stormy Atlantic Sea.

Our labels are designed to reflect the rich variety of sea and landscapes of the Islands and that which surrounds our distillery itself.

From our small, family-run business we hope to share with you our Orcadian artisan drinks, so you can experience a taste of Orkney yourself.
