Ronnie Paterson

Warehouseman. Kirkwall Ba’ champion.


The pursuit for Viking Harmony – the battle for balance – is inherently a team sport. And when it comes to being a team player, Ronnie is a natural. He brings the same enthusiastic commitment and sense of team spirit to the distillery as he does when he plays the Kirkwall Ba’ Game: in a tradition predating known records, the Kirkwall Ba’ Game is played twice a year (Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) between the Uppies and the Doonies. Playing for the Uppies, Ronnie is one of very few Orcadians to have won the final Ba’ as man and boy - in 2007 and back in 1985, with his twin brother Jack.
