For most of whisky drinkers Orkney are associated with Highland Park Distillery, home of the famous Valhalla Collection.
Scapa, small and modest, has been producing whisky since 1885, always remaining in the shadow of its celebrated neighbor. Since 2005 the distillery is owned by Chivas Bros, part of Pernod Ricard, and fully refurbished works at full capacity. Scapa used to have the longest fermentation time of 160 hours, recently cut to 52 hours due to increased production. The distillery is equipped with a single pair of stills with wash still being one of only two remaining Lomond stills in the industry. Scapa 12 years old was introduced in the late 1990s and remained part of the range until 2004, when 14 years old expression replaced it.
