Description

The distillery say this gin 'reflects the boldness of our seafaring Norse ancestors, the clarity of our seas and the purity of our air, Kirkjuvagr is an inspired islands spirit that's unmistakably Orcadian. They discovered a local legend that spoke of a variety of Angelica brought to the island by the Norsemen a thousand years ago and still growing wild on the Orkney island of Westray. This angelica is now one of the defining ingredients, complimenting a unique blend of local botanicals, including Ramanas Rose, Burnet Rose and Borage, all specially grown and hand-picked. Also a traditional local bere barley creating a distinctive gin that's unmistakably Orcadian.
