Meet the maker

Stuart and Adelle Brown - a husband and wife team - turned their dream into reality when they moved from Australia and opened the first new distillery on Orkney for over 130 years. The small distillery was designed and built by Stuart and Adelle with a little help from family, friends and neighbours close to their family home on the East Mainland of Orkney. The production process at Deerness Distillery is carried out entirely by hand.
