Kirkjuvagr - Arkh-Angell (70cl, 57%)

Kirkjuvagr

Arkh-Angell is Kirkjuvagr's high strength gin that pays homage to the proud seafaring heritage of Orkney.

It retains the smoothness and characteristics of the original Kirkjuvagr, but at 57% ABV, the increased strength brings new depths to its complex flavour profile.

Arkh-Angell is a tribute to generations of island seafarers, and carries the name of a local fishing boat that has a place close to the heart of many Orcadians. The gin’s name also reflects the use of a locally grown variety of Norwegian angelica, called Archangelica, taken to the Islands centuries ago by sailors from the North.
