Scuttled Gin is a special release from Deerness Distillery which has been created with the SCAPA100 initiative to mark the centenary of the scuttling of the WWI German High Seas Fleet in Scapa Flow on 21st June 1919. A percentage of the profits go to support the project.

Exceptionally versatile, Scuttled Gin is distilled using a variety of botanicals including juniper, tarragon, cassia bark, lemon peel, chamomile flower heads, green pepper, lavender and mint.

Made in a traditional alembic copper still with a reflux column to refine the process, Scuttled Gin contains Orcadian water and each bottle is filled, corked, sealed and signed by hand.

Tasting Notes

Scuttled Gin is juniper led, followed by a spicy lemon cassia bark with peppery middle notes, and a smooth lavender mint finish to cleanse the palate.

The perfect serve

Can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Sip over ice or mix with your favourite tonic and add a slice of orange, lemon or lime. For the more adventurous, try some pink peppercorns or a few thin slices of green chilli to bring out the cassia bark spice.

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.
