Kirkjuvagr means “Church Bay” in Old Norse. Back when Orkney was emerging as a seat of power in the Viking Empire, the Norsemen would sail their longships into Kirkjuvagr, which over the centuries grew into our islands’ capital, Kirkwall.
In name, Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin reflects the rich history of the islands and the boldness of those ancient seafarers. In character though, it’s utterly contemporary and has been crafted with the modern, discerning gin enthusiast in mind.
When forming the Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin recipe, they discovered a local legend that spoke of a variety of Angelica brought to the islands by Norsemen centuries ago. This Angelica can still be found growing wild today.
It became one of their defining ingredients, complementing a unique blend of local botanicals, including Ramanas Rose, Burnet Rose and Borage. Uniquely, also used traditional Orkney bere barley in our recipe.
