The Orkney Distillery

Every building tells a story. Ours is being written as we build the Orkney Distillery - the home of Orkney Gin.

Construction work is well underway to create the Orkney Distillery and Visitor Centre - the home of Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin. The dilapidated warehouses that we're replacing offer an incredible insight into Kirkwall's industrial past, and it is our intention to encompass aspects of this history within our new, purpose-built building.

UPDATE - 27/09/2017

With the building now almost wind and watertight, work on our new distillery and visitor centre is progressing well and we’re excited to share a bit more about it.

Since laying the foundations in April, our building team has been working steadily to create what will be the hub of all our activity, from gin production to visitor centre and private function space.

While the builders do their work on the physical space, we’re busy planning our visitor experience, with an exciting programme of tours and gin tastings planned for 2018.

Using 3D renders of the internal site plans, we’re carefully crafting the best distillery experience possible.




This is our plan for the future - a modern and welcoming distillery and visitor centre, producing high quality Orcadian spirits and a unique experience for visitors and locals alike.
