Award winning spirits from Orkney’s Deerness Distillery have the answer, with these stunning hampers (pictured). They also have single bottle options.
Owned and founded by Stuart and Adelle Brown, Deerness Distillery is situated in the beautiful Parish of Deerness on the east mainland of Orkney. The couple designed and constructed the distillery with the help of family, friends and neighbours.
It accommodates stills which distill gin and vodka, plus a forthcoming range of bespoke spirits and liqueurs.
Deerness Distillery also offers tours, tastings and a shop.
Karen Duncan is a Burray lass and her jewellery designs strongly reflect her local roots in the linked south isles.
She was recently accepted into the Guild of Master Craftsmen, the first Orkney jeweller to gain this accolade, in recognition of the artisan skills she has honed over the last 30 years.
In 2007, Karen took a leap of faith and set up on her own, establishing a workshop in the house she was building in Burray. It’s here Karen creates new designs, experiments with different textures and colours, and perfects each piece before it is packaged up ready for sale.
Karen comes from a long line of craftspeople and has adapted these inherited skills and her natural problem-solving abilities to the world of jewellery making. She can turn her hand to anything: one-off commissioned pieces for special occasions, remodelling or repairing existing pieces, as well as making her own designs.
