Orkney Distilleries

Orkney Distilleries

The bracing and beautiful archipelago of Orkney boasts two excellent distilleries on its largest Island, which is referred to by Orcadians as ‘Mainland’. Scapa is the smaller, with only two stills, and produces predominantly unpeated whiskies of elegance and subtle charm.

Highland Park is the larger, although with only four stills is hardly a leviathan! The traditional style at Highland Park is a moderately peated spirit, aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks.
