Key notes: Wa



Based on the rugged group of islands of the same name off the north coast of Scotland, location is everything for the Orkney Gin Company. Local botanicals form the base of the gin and the distinctive logo represents a mythic selkie-woman – a seal that can take human form and has been interacting with Orcadians for centuries. And the Mikkelmas name comes from the Mikkel Feast celebrated in Orkney with a big meal and dance to mark the end of harvest.


It all started as a hobby; making homemade gin as Christmas presents for family and friends, and this hand-crafted approach can still be seen in the process today. Using the bathtub style method, the botanicals are blended with seven-times distilled spirit in tiny batches. Each one is carefully sampled, bottled and labelled by hand into beautiful ceramic bottles. It means that the flavour of each batch varies slightly, adding to the unique character of the gin.
