Scapa distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery situated on The Mainland of Orkney, Scotland on the shore of Scapa Flow near the town of Kirkwall. The Scapa distillery, founded in 1885 by Macfarlane & Townsend, the distillery has one wash still and one spirit still producing single malt. It is an especially honeyed flavour and less peaty than most Island Whiskies. This is because, though the water at the source is peaty, it gets transported to the distillery through pipelines to avoid further contact with the peat, moreover the malt is not dried over peat smoke.
