Iona Macleod – Bar Operative

An entertainer by nature, Iona graduated from Bucks University with a degree in Musical Theatre. On her return to Orkney she continued to perform, singing and acting at local events. She loves to travel and is currently planning the trip of a lifetime to Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Iona brings this lively and outgoing sprit to the Distillery during her stints behind the bar at the weekend.
