Orkney Food & Drink
Born from a pristine environment of rolling green fields and clean seas, Orkney’s distinctive and remarkably varied range of food and drink truly encapsulates the essence of the islands, reflecting the character of a resourceful and enterprising community where excellence really matters.
There’s a refreshing honesty and authenticity about Orkney’s wonderful produce, from our locally reared premium beef and sustainably fished crab, lobster, scallops and salmon, to our award-winning beers, ice-cream, oatcakes, fudge, cheese, baking and whisky. Quality is the thread that runs through it all and we like to think the standards set by our dedicated and experienced producers are unrivalled.
Needless to say, it all tastes great, but don’t just take our word for it, come and try for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you. www.orkneyfoodanddrink.com
