Orkney Akvavit: a refreshingly smooth spirit, inspired by the legends of Viking ancestors from the picturesque Orkney Islands. This Scandi-inspired gem isn’t just any spirit; it’s the pioneer of its kind in Scotland, boasting a flavour profile so unique, it’s clinched titles like World’s Best Aquavit, a prestigious Great British Food Award, and not to mention, several dazzling Three Star Great Taste Awards.

 

Crafted with care, Orkney Akvavit is a Scandinavian botanical delight, distilled not once, not twice, but a whopping eight times! Picture this: caraway takes the lead, dancing alongside refreshing herbaceous notes, all culminating in an irresistibly smooth and fresh finish. But wait, there’s more! Bright orange zest and whispers of star anise mingle with the richness of Madagascan vanilla, ensuring each sip is a journey in itself.

 

Now, let’s dive into history, shall we? Unlike many parts of bonnie Scotland, Orkney’s roots trace back to Scandinavia, having been under its Viking embrace for centuries. That’s right, their dialect sings with Norse influence, a testament to their vibrant past. From tales of selkies to cherished traditions and folklore, their bond with Scandinavia runs deep.

 

So, it’s no wonder that Orkney, with its rich heritage and a penchant for pushing boundaries, would birth Scotland’s very first Akvavit. It’s a tale as old as time, where the echoes of the past meet the innovation of the present, all encapsulated in a bottle of Orkney Akvavit.
