Spirit of the Bear

We’ve created the 16 Year Old Wings Of The Eagle to celebrate our wild and windswept island. Our waters are stormy, our winters are long, and no tree can survive here for long… but that just makes for a more harmonious whisky.
Our island is so wild that our Orkney winds can reach speeds of over 100 miles per hour in winter. It means that our moorland peat is woodless but rich in fragrant heather, which, when burned, produces the characteristic aromatic smokiness of our whisky. In this whisky’s case, when you pair that smokiness with maturation in hand-picked sherry seasoned European oak casks, you capture an intriguing depth of flavour.
With harmonised notes of sweet figs, apricots, nutmeg, chocolate-coated marzipan, and aromatic heather-rich peat-smoke, 16 Year Old Wings Of The Eagle is an uncompromising, wildly balanced single malt.
