Made by Andrea and Gary, a husband and wife team from Burray in the archipelago of Orkney, the Orkney Gin Company make a range of handcrafted gins using the traditional cold compounding method. The process is labour intensive and the gin is produced in tiny micro-batches. Infusion is undertaken in stages, and constant, meticulous sampling for quality is carried out. Once the perfect balance has been achieved, the gin is blended, filtered and bottled. Hand labelling lends a personal finishing touch. The family has now opened a purpose built distillery beside their home which will allow them to experiment with and create distilled spirits.
