    Few locations are quite as magical as the Orkney Isles. Located at the point where the Atlantic meets the North Sea, it is an archipelago of 70 islands with a history dating back to 8000BC.

    Scapa is one of Scotland's smallest distilleries and dates back to 1885. It is one of the most northerly Scotch Whisky distilleries. Despite the slightly daunting remoteness of the location, founding Speyside duo Macfarlane and Townsend were intrigued by the potential to create small batch malt Scotch Whisky of great character and personality, harnessing Orkney's endless summer evenings and the entrepreneurial and hard-working reputation of its people.

    This beguiling whisky evokes the beauty of Orkney, with the softer side of the island reflected in the bright, sweet, silky smooth liquid, and the lightest whisper of the seas testifying to its unique provenance.

    In the 1950's, Alistair Cunningham and Arthur Warren of Hiram Walker invented a new type of pot still with adjustable plates within the neck of the still which could be moved to help create different styles of whisky for blending purposes - the "Lomond" still. Scapa is one of very few distilleries that continues to use a Lomond still today. Stand beside it in the stillhouse and enjoy the beautiful views out of the large picture window across the bay.
