A sale of 200 inaugural single malt casks will begin today, ahead of their production on the island

Deerness Distillery, Orkney’s first whisky producer to open in 138 years, is about to begin a sale of 200 casks of its inaugural release single malt.

Starting at midday today, this exclusive sale of a limited number of casks is expected to draw interest from buyers worldwide. Once filled, the casks will contain Deerness’ moderately-peated style new make.

Family owned and operated, the distillery has already made a name for itself with the Sea Glass Gin and remains committed to its community roots, having been designed by Stuart Brown, a chartered engineer, and built with the help of his wife Adelle, family and friends.
