The Mikkel Feast, or the Feast of St Michael was traditionally celebrated by Orcadians from the 29th of September to the 12th of October. This celebration marked the end of the harvest and the end of an Orkney summer. The tradition still exists today with each island hosting its own Harvest Home, a traditional meal and dance that lasts long into the night.
Bold, seasonal botanicals are used to capture the warming autumnal spirit of Mikkelmas in a spicy, silky smooth gin.
At Orkney Gin Company we handcraft our gin in order to retain the full flavour of our botanicals and ensure the highest quality end product. Our bathtub style method involves blending a varety of the finest botanicals with seven times premium grain distilled spirit -a modern take on a traditional method.
Our bathtub style method requires ultra-small batches to be filtered, repeatedly sampled then carefully bottled and labelled by hand; creating two unique, seasonal gins with distinct flavours reflecting the islands we call home.
The flavour of our gin may vary slightly from batch to batch, although we follow the same precise recipe, this is due to the natural variations in the botanicals used and we feel this simply adds to the character of our unique creations.
Made in Orkney, Scotland.
