Deerness Distillery is said to be the first new commercial distillery on Scotland’s Orkney islands in over 130 years; it is situated in the parish of Deerness in Orkney’s east mainland. The spirit is made in a traditional alembic copper pot still with an additional reflux column to refine the process, then the liquid is cut with pure Orcadian water before each bottle is hand-filled, corked, sealed and signed. In addition to gin, the Australian husband and wife team plan to introduce vodka, rum and a coffee liqueur. An on-site shop and viewing area are scheduled to open in 2018.
