This barley wine is reddish gold in colour, the name a nod to the island’s Viking heritage. The British malt base provides a rich sweetness, balanced out by the American hops for a fruit-cake like aroma and luscious flavour. It’s a heady combination and a boozy hit reminiscent of the wildness of the sea that surrounds the Orkney Isles. - Learn more about Swannay Brewery

About the makers

Swannay Brewery
Swannay Brewery Award winning Orkney beer

The Orkney based Swannay Brewery make their beer next to the sea in the wind-battered section of Orkney’s mainland known as Swannay. It started off as a one-man show by founder Rob and is now internationally acclaimed and known as one of Scotland’s most successful breweries. When it comes to beer making, around half of it goes into cask and the rest is either bottled or put in the keg. One strain of yeast is used for a range of resulting strengths, from barrel-aged porters to a hoppy variety of session IPAs. View the Swannay Brewery page
