Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin
Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin
In name, Kirkjuvagr Gin reflects the rich history of our islands and the boldness of those ancient seafarers. In character though, it’s utterly contemporary and has been crafted with the modern, discerning gin enthusiast in mind.
When creating Kirkjuvagr, on the shores of Kirkwall Bay, we thought it fitting to seek out a connection to our Viking ancestors that ran deeper than just our name.
We then discovered a local legend that spoke of a variety of Angelica brought to the islands by Norsemen centuries ago, which can still be found growing wild today.
Naturally, this very Angelica is now one of our defining ingredients, complementing a unique blend of local botanicals, including Ramanas Rose, Burnet Rose and Borage. Uniquely, we’ve also used traditional Orkney bere barley in our recipe.
AURORA - celebrate the darkness
Our new Aurora Spiced Gin is NOW ON-SALE!
In Orkney, the appearance of the Aurora Borialis, or Northern Lights, marks the start of our journey towards the long, dark nights of an island winter. The almost endless days of our summer means that this breath-taking spectacle can't be easily seen, so the return of our 'Merry Dancers' is always eagerly anticipated. It's a time for wrapping up and gazing skywards in awe, before gathering indoors to share stories around a roaring peat fire.
This Aurora edition of our acclaimed Kirkjuvagr Gin seeks to bring extra warmth and spice to those crisp evenings under the stars. Ground cinnamon, nutmeg and whole cloves provide this warm spice whilst pink and black peppercorns deliver a lasting tongue-tingling presence in the finish.
Aurora is fast becoming a hit with gin lovers, and its 50cl bottle size makes it the perfect Christmas gift!
