Mikkelmas Gin is handcrafted by the multi award winning Orkney Gin Company and is inspired by The Mikkel Feast, or the Feast of St Michael.

The Mikkel Feast is traditionally celebrated by Orcadians from 29th September to 12th October, marking the end of the harvest and summer. The tradition still exists today with most parishes still hosting their own Harvest Home, a traditional meal and dance that lasts long into the night.

Made using a combination of traditional botanicals including juniper berries, cinnamon and orange peel as well as locally sourced botanicals such as ling heather and wild rosehips.

The gin is presented in a stoneware bottle that depicts an Orkney ‘Selkie’. The Selkies are mysterious, shape-shifting creatures of Orcadian legend. In the sea, they take the form of seals. On the land, they cast aside their sealskins and emerge as beautiful young men and women, mysterious and alluring.

Tasting Notes

Bold, seasonal botanicals are used to capture the warming autumnal spirit of Mikkelmas in a spicy, silky smooth gin.

The perfect serve

Perfect when served over ice with a slice of orange or fresh ginger and topped up with a quality ginger ale.

Meet the maker

Made by Andrea and Gary, a husband and wife team from Burray in the archipelago of Orkney, the Orkney Gin Company started by making 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.
