Find Your Adventurous Spirit


Each bottle helps write the next chapter of the Northwest Passage

Made in Orkney

This craft gin, made in The Orkney Distillery alongside the award-winning Kirkjuvagr brand, is a treat for all spirit lovers who want to experience the familiar taste of a G&T and new, wild, distant tones from frozen Arctic shores.

The Expedition

Our gin has not been distilled to mark history, but to make history. The proceeds will fund the Northwest Passage’s final chapter – navigation by human power alone. This will be the ultimate ocean row – a 3,700km odyssey through thawing arctic tundra.

Over Ice

Making History

Botanicals from the shores of Orkney and the Hudson Bay.

Water from the same spring that supplied the ships of Captain Cook and Sir John Franklin.

Distilled at The Orkney Distillery.

The Legacy

All proceeds from each bottle sold of this one-of-a-kind spirit will also be used to fund the 3700km maritime navigation of the Northwest Passage by human power, known as ‘The Last Great First’.
