Guided tour of the Orkney Distillery, home to Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin. Our distillery tours run at 11am and 2pm each day (except Sundays) with extra tours added for peak times.

Guided tours start with a short audio-visual presentation describing the story of our gin and the history of our islands. Your guide will then show you the working processes of the distillery and how our gin is hand-crafted in small batches, detailing the unique blend of Orkney-grown botanicals that we use to create our spirit. Finally, we head to the tasting room to relax and sample our range of gins, then to the bar where you can enjoy your perfect Gin and Tonic. Tours will last approximately 1 hour and include a complimentary gin and tonic and a discount in our shop.
