You’ll find the Deerness Distillery situated on the ancient island of Orkneyjar. These days it’s better known as Orkney. At 10 miles long, Orkney compromises approximately 70 islands, of which 20 are inhabited. An area of outstanding beauty and ancient historical ties to the sea, and it’s from these ancient links of people and land to the sea where the team at Deerness Distillery took inspiration for their Sea Glass Gin.
A family run craft distillery in the Parish of Deerness, the team value tradition and cherish the community spirit that’s to be found on the island. This community spirit was in abundance as family, friends and neighbours all helped build the distillery.
Carefully crafted from start to finish in the Deerness Distillery on the Island of Orkney, Sea Glass Gin will evoke your senses with each sip.
