Explore the magical Scots Isles through Orkney Johnsmas Gin. Taste local heather and mint alongside classic botanicals for a gin full of flavour.
What started out as a hobby, making hand-crafted gin as a Christmas present for family and friends, is now a family-run business. The inspiration is the rugged coast and wind-swept hills of Orkney, so local botanicals form the base of both their small batch seasonal gins. Orkney use the bathtub-style method to distill their gin, blending a variety of botanicals with seven times-distilled spirit. Johnsmas is the Orcadian midsummer, a time of year steeped in tradition. This gin reflects long, clear days when the flowers are in bloom. Botanicals used include roses and local, seasonal heather, for a refreshing gin with floral notes.
Orkney Johnsmas Gin opens with a fragrant burst of roses, heather and mint. Subtle juniper blends with the pepper and heady floral notes that dominate on the palate, followed by a luscious finish reminiscent of Turkish Delight.
