Kirkjuvagr Aurora Gin is an award winning spiced gin that brings extra warmth and spice to crisp evenings under the stars.

Ground cinnamon, nutmeg and whole cloves provide this warm spice whilst pink and black peppercorns provide a lasting tongue-tingling presence in the finish.

Kirkjuvagr Aurora Gin is named after the Aurora Borialas or Northern Lights, the appearance of which marks the start of the journey towards the long, dark nights of an Orcadian winter.

Tasting Notes

Aurora opens with the sweetness of orange and cinnamon but soon transforms into a warming spicy finish from the pink and black peppercorns used in distillation.

The perfect serve

Perfect when served over plenty of ice with a wedge of orange, a cinnamon stick and topped with ginger ale.

Meet the maker

Orkney Distilling was launched in 2016 by husband and wife team Stephen and Aly Kemp. Based in Kirkwall, the capital of Orkney, the couple wanted to create a range of spirits use local botanicals and celebrates the heritage of Orkney. With the help of the Agronomy Institute from the University of the Highlands and Islands, they started researching different local botanicals to perfect their recipe. Orkney Distillery was then opened in July 2018, sitting on Kirkwall's harbour front. The flagship Kirkjuvagr range underwent a rebrand in late 2021 and is now presented in a custom bottle.
