The Taste Of Orkney

Made with extraordinary care and attention, each bottle from Deerness Distillery is a work of perfection.

Ranging from our multi-award winning Orkney gin to our premium classic vodka, our products will take you on a sensory journey and bring home the taste of Orkney to you.

Sea Glass Gin

Sea Glass Gin is our multi-award winning, Orkney gin. Released in Spring 2017, the result of much experimentation, to our friends delight – mostly!

Sea Glass Gin takes you on a pleasurable sensory journey through warm spices, hints of citrus and of course juniper. A reflection of the Orkney Islands’ ever-changing seascape, which is also captured in our beautiful label.

Pair with your favourite Indian tonic water or maybe an elderflower infused tonic. Franklin & Sons Pineapple Mixer with Almond is a must try! Garnish with anything you have handy in your fridge, that’s how we designed it. Blueberries, lemon or kiwi, there is no end to its versatility.

Scuttled Gin

Scuttled Gin was created and released December 2018 to mark the centenary of the scuttling of the WWI German High Seas Fleet in Scapa Flow on 21st June 1919 – read more here. A close look at the eye-catching label reveals boats that remain in Scapa Flow and the Scapa 100 logo boat.

Scuttled Gin is juniper led, followed by a spicy lemon cassia bark with peppery middle notes. With a smooth lavender mint finish to cleanse the palate. Pair it with your favourite Indian tonic, or for those who like a sweet gin, lemonade compliments the spices perfectly. The adventurous among you might like Franklin & Sons Rosemary Tonic with Black Olive!

Orcadian Moon – Our Orkney Coffee Liqueur

Our Orkney coffee liqueur, Orcadian Moon has been a while in the making but it’s finally here! The clean coffee base is provided by using Alfie coffee. Alfie coffee air roast their beans, resulting in a smooth finish with no bitterness. Blended with rum and vanilla results in a multi-award winning coffee liqueur.
We’re lucky here in Orkney to have beautiful clear skies and a stunning sea view from our distillery. We’ve tried to capture the moment the full moon shines on our surrounding sea and illuminates the landscape with our bottle label design. We think we’ve done it!
Orcadian Moon can be enjoyed neat on ice, in your next coffee or hot chocolate. Or of course the drink of the moment, martini expresso – yum!
