Spontaneous, self-sufficient, and with a little spirit thrown in for good measure, that’s Stuart and Adelle Brown, founders of Deerness Distillery – Orkney’s first distillery for over 130 years. It is here that they produce their multi-award winning ‘Sea Glass Gin’, ‘Scuttled Gin’, new Vara Gin and the UK's most Northerly distilled vodka, ‘Into the Wild’. Add into the mix a multi-award winning coffee liqueur 'Orcadian Moon' and they offer something to suit everyone!
From their purpose-built distillery at the side of their home in Deerness, Orkney, their signature spirits 'Sea Glass Gin' and 'Into the Wild Vodka' were launched back in May 2017, after a year of construction and product development. The distillery boasts a beautiful shop to browse and you are welcome to free tastings of their full range. Plans are afoot for a café and extending their award winning spirits with a small batch rum and small batch whisky.
Deerness Distillery spirits are a must try (and visit if you can!) if you’re looking for an exclusive multi-award winning premium gin, vodka or coffee liqueur whilst visiting Orkney.
