Johnsmas Gin is handcrafted by the multi award winning Orkney Gin Company and is inspired by the long, clear days of an Orcadian summer where the sun barely disappears below the horizon.
This time of year is steeped in traditional Orkney folklore and is marked by bonfires, festivals, and music.
Crafted using a combination of juniper berries and orange peel with locally picked seasonal botanicals including wild rose petals, bell heather and wild spearmint.
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.
