Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin

An 'unmistakably Orcadian' gin made with locally grown botanicals including Ramanas Rose, Burnet Rose, Angelica and Borage. The inclusion of Angelica was inspired by a story that suggested Angelica was brought to the Orkney islands by Norsemen, and can still be found growing there. Further connection to Orkney's heritage comes from the name, Kirkjuvagr, which means 'Church Bay' in Old Norse.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Peppery juniper and salty sea air (salt and pepper is a classic combo, after all...), floral dandelion.

Palate Candied peels, coriander. A bit perfume-y in spots.

Finish Drying spice, vanilla-y angelica and a resurgence of sea spray salinity.

Reviews for Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin
Great Scottish Gin
One of my favourite Scottish Gins! Perfect smooth London Dry, preferred mine with grapefruit Mediterranean tonic.

Fairly average
Fairly standard gin. Not bad but nothing special for price.

Smooth, perfect for martini and negroni!
A fantastically smooth, classic London dry style. Perfect balance of floral vs citrus notes, and at 43% it works nicely in a negroni or
Martini

Not bad!
I was ever so excited to try this, classy bottle! Slightly disappointed however it is drinkable with tonic.

Classic, traditional gin
Juniper forward, little hints of spice, but really well rounded. Quite an oldskool "proper" gin (in a good way). Great in a classic G&T with some orange peel. Holds up in a martini also and enough about it for a negroni.

Smooth, balanced gin
A wonderfully smooth gin, with a perfect blend of mild floral notes with the sweetness of the citrus coming through. A very discreet warm spice on the finish

Rubbish don’t drink it
Worse gin ever. Not sure it would be good enough to clean my bathroom. It really is rough. Had smoother diamond white in 1980’s.

Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin
Not at all bad but slightly uninspiring, this does sit better with a flavoured tonic but certainly not a sipping gin.
