Beginning with Old Word
The production of gin has become prolific in numerous small distilleries throughout Britain. One of them, the Orkney Gin Company, is hoping that its product, Johnsmas Gin, will win a high award in a global competition. The word 'Johnsmas' refers to a once celebrated occasion in Orkney and Shetland on Midsummer's Day. The company is based at Burray, Orkney, and so if you should miss the bus (below) then there is somewhere significant to visit. If not, then just enjoy the piece in The Orcadian.
