Orkney has always been a creative community.
For thousands of years, these islands have been full of innovation and industry. That’s still true today, with Orkney home to some of the finest food, drink and crafts producers to be found anywhere.
Our local larder is full of fabulous products, including award-winning whiskies, gins and beers, delicious ice-cream, cheese and fudge, and some of the best shellfish, beef and lamb in the world.
Our traditional and contemporary craft makers also showcase the best of the islands. Workshops around Orkney are full of the sound of unique, hand-crafted items being made, including jewellery, ceramics, knitwear and Orcadian furniture.
