The Gin

We've developed a craft gin that is rich in flavour, steeped in history and overflowing with record breaking ambition
Get Yours Today!


Our unique flavours are drawn from botanicals found on the twin shores of the mighty Hudson Bay and Orkney Islands. The Angelica root adds a hint of sweetness that is balanced by a subtle, floral note from the roses. The addition of lemon peel and calamondin brings the bright, citrus notes to the gin and the sugar kelp brings a mild saltiness to the palette, connecting our spirit to the sea.

Made in Scotland

This craft gin, made in the Orkney Distillery alongside the award-winning Kirkjuvagr brand, is for real gin lovers who will be intrigued by the pure, wild tastes of the Arctic shoreline. For all its flavour, there is one secret ingredient not listed: a spirit of adventure.


  • Sugar Kelp
  • Angelica Archangelica
  • Ramanas Rose 
  • Burnet Rose

Suggested Serves

Gin & Tonic

  • 50ml gin
  • 100ml FeverTree Mediterranean Tonic Water  

Served over ice. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of samphire (or thyme, if you don’t have samphire). The lemon compliments the citrus tones while the salty nature of samphire sits well with the Sugar Kelp to give a coastal feel.

Northwest Gin & Tonic serving Suggestion

The Northwest Apple

  • 50ml gin
  • 12.5ml lemon juice
  • 75/100ml cloudy apple juice

Shaken and served in a rocks glass (or in a highball topped with soda). Garnish with Thai basil and a blackberry. The citrus from the gin and lemon balances with the sweetness from the apple and the Thai basil on the nose gives a wee bit of spiced aromatic to the drink.

The Northwest Spice Route

  • 50ml gin
  • 75/100ml ginger beer

Shaken and served in a rocks glass (or in a highball topped with soda). Garnish with a strawberry and a twist or two of pepper. The citrus from the gin accentuates the spicy flavour from the pepper and ginger.
