Scapa was founded in 1885 and the majority of its production goes into blends including Ballantine's. Often described as the 'other Orkney whisky' Scapa is one of the last distilleries using a Lomond still. This one has had the rectifier plates removed to produce a classic pot still style of spirit.
This is a limited edition bottling. 249 bottles were released and represents the number of ships involved in the battle of Jutland in World War I.
This lot also contains a short magazine and Orcadian newspaper, with photos of the naval ships involved and information about the battle of Jutland. As you can see the magazine's front cover is a copy of the Orkney newspaper's original front page story from Saturday, June the 3rd, 1916.
