Focus on the Deerness Distillery

Orkney Food and Drink member The Deerness Distillery is the latest subject of our Business Focus feature.

We've been taking a closer look at the newest gin producer in the islands at the purpose-built distillery in the East Mainland of Orkney. Set-up by Stuart and Adelle Brown, the company has recently launched its first products, Sea Glass Gin and Into the Wild Vodka.

Inside the Deerness Distillery in Orkney's East Mainland


The entire operation is run by the partnership, from tasting and testing to getting the bottles out for sale, and everything in-between. Despite only releasing its first batch of bottles earlier this year, there are already big plans for the future, with new ranges being investigated and the possibility of a small shop and visiting area too.
