As a tribute to Orkney's Viking history, the gin names and botanicals are all linked to Norse heritage - Kirkjuvagr means 'Church Bay' in Old Norse. Arkh-Angell is the name of a local fishing boat and the name also reflects the use of a locally grown variety of Norwegian angelica, called Archangelica.
Our Orcadian botanicals are locally grown and handpicked; these include, Norwegian Angelica, Ramanas Rose, Burnet Rose, Borage and traditional Orkney bere barley.
Arkh-Angell maintains the integrity of Kirkjuvagr but at 57% carries a remarkably powerful, yet smooth finish with notes of pine and a hint of liquorice.
