The Orkney Gin Company draw inspiration from their islands rich culture, archaeology and traditions. The award winning gin takes a refreshingly modern twist on a traditional style, producing unique and distinctly Orcadian gin.
The Mikkel Feast, or the Feast of St Michael was traditionally celebrated by Orcadians from the 29th of September to the 12th of October. This celebration marked the end of the harvest and the end of an Orkney summer. The tradition still exists today with each island hosting it’s own Harvest Home, a traditional meal and dance that lasts long into the night.
Bold, seasonal botanicals are used to capture the warming autumnal spirit of Mikkelmas in a spicy, silky smooth gin. As the sun sets into the Autumn sky’s this gin captures all the magic and autumnal colours.
