Scapa, founded 1885, has often been described as “the Orkney other distillery”. It is located near Kirkwall, the capitol of Orkney, and indeed, it has been living in a shadow of its great neighbor, Highland Park Distillery. Currently Scapa is owned by Chivas Bros, subsidiary of Pernod Ricard, and produces roughly 1 million liters of spirit per annum. Scapa is one of only two distilleries (the second is Loch Lomond) still using lomond wash still for whisky production – a still equipped with perforated plates controlling the reflux action of spirit (however the plates have been removed). Gordon & MacPhail hold bottling license for the brand and release it as part of the Distillery Labels range. Scapa 2001, bottled 2015, contains whisky aged in white American oak barrels.
