Scapa WhiskyScapa Whisky Distillery is on Orkney and has one wash still and one spirit still. Scapa Whisky Distillery produces a honey flavoured malt whisky, less peaty than most island whiskies. This is because although the source water is peaty, it gets transported to the Scapa Whisky Distillery through pipelines and avoids more contact with the peat. The Scapa Whisky Distillery, founded in 1885 was mothballed in 1994 and faced closure in 2004. During that period, the most commonly available edition was the Scapa 12 years old, which was and still is a most distinctive island whisky for its subtle heathery honey plus sea taste. Still, it was decided to rebuild / restore the distillery, and the first new spirit in 10 years flowed in November 2004. Because of the time-gap, it was decided to stop the 12 years and introduce the 14 years, which is quite different from its predecessor, even though the basic characteristics are intact.
