Orkney Gin Company -Johannistag Navy Strength Old Tom Gin Collectable £69.95
HIGHLY COLLECTABLE AS NOT AVAILABLE ON THE OPEN MARKET - BUT LUCKILY WE HAVE A FEW BOTTLES LEFT
Johannistag Navy Strength Old Tom marks the centenary of the Scuttling of the German High Seas Fleet in Orkney's Scapa Flow. Only 1000 special edition bottles were released: 500 in November 2018, when the German Fleet first entered Scapa Flow 100 years ago, and 500 in June 2019, marking the date the ships were scuttled.
Johannistag is 57%abv, which makes it a 'Navy Strength' gin. The name is German, and translates to Mid Summer’s Day, or St John’s Day. The botanicals in Johannistag reflect Orkney's summer climate, with a smooth Old Tom style finish, lightly sweetened using Orcadian honey sourced in Shapinsay.
A percentage of the profits has been donated to Orkney's RNLI - please see our blog posts for more information.
The flavour of our gins 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 adds to the character of our unique creations.
