To help fund our expedition we have crafted Northwest Passage Expedition Gin, flavoured with botanicals from the shores of Orkney and the Hudson Bay in Canada, that transports you back to the Age of Discovery.
Our amazing gin is rich in flavour, steeped in history and overflowing with record breaking ambition, the true Spirit of Adventure.
We are delighted to announce that our amazing Northwest Passage Expedition Gin, launched to help fund our expedition to be the first to row the 3,700km arctic Northwest Passage and bring attention to marine conservation through our partners Big Blue Ocean Cleanup, has won The Spirit Business Gin Masters Gold 2021
The unique flavours are drawn from Sugar Kelp, Angelica Archangelica, Ramanas Rose, Lemon, Calamondin and Burnet Rose. The Angelica root adds a hint of sweetness that is balanced by a subtle, floral note from the roses. The addition of lemon peel and calamondin brings the bright, citrus notes to the gin and the sugar kelp, a seaweed, adds a mild saltiness to the palette, connecting the spirit to the sea.
Some Great News on 20th Sept 2021 - Our amazing gin is a finalist in this year’s Scottish Gin Awards
We will know the results of the final judging at the end of October 2021
Many thanks to Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin and the awards sponsors Vetroelite
In July we completed our 350 mile row between Newcastle and Orkney in our 44ft ocean rowing boat, decked out in the Northwest Passage Expedition Gin branding.
