This month marks the launch of Scapa Skiren, an artisanal single malt forged by the elements of Orkney, a remote island of natural contrasts.
Crafted by five dedicated artisans at the manually operated Scapa distillery, Scapa Skiren’s smooth taste embodies the unexpected contrasts of the Orkney Islands, setting it apart from traditional Island Malts. A unique barrel-shaped Lomond wash still – the only remaining working Lomond in the Scotch whisky industry – is used for distillation, resulting in a richer and fruiter honeyed spirit. Exclusive maturation in First Fill American Oak casks gives Scapa Skiren a smooth creamy sweetness with a hint of tropical, citrus fruit and coastal heather, uncommon for an Island Single Malt but distinctly Scapa at its core.
Scapa Skiren, priced at $60 USD RRP, is currently being rolled out in Global Travel Retail and is available in selected retailers in the UK and France.
