NorthLink Ferries to Orkney and Shetland

Refreshing Scottish Tonic Offer for NorthLink Ferries Passengers

NorthLink Ferries is offering passengers a truly Scottish drinks deal this month.

Until 18th January, all passengers who purchase either the popular Rock Rose Gin or Shetland Reel Gin from the NorthLink Ferries on board bars will receive a free 200ml bottle of Walter Gregor’s Tonic Water.

Produced and bottled in Aberdeenshire by Summerhouse Drinks, the tonic water is Scotland’s first and only tonic.

Speaking of the offer, Peter Hutchinson, Customer Service Director at NorthLink Ferries, said: “We are extremely pleased to offer this great deal to our passengers and to grow our existing relationship with Summerhouse Drinks.

“The cocktail of Rock Rose Gin, which is distilled close to our terminal in Scrabster, or the Shetland Reel Gin, combined with Walter Gregor’s Tonic Walter will create a truly Scottish gin and tonic.

Walter Gregor’s Tonic Water is created from a series of natural botanics, including the bitter yet refreshing cinchona bark, grown in the in the garden of the historic Parish of Pitsligo where Victorian Minister Walter Gregor once served and where Summerhouse Drinks is now based.

Claire Rennie, Managing Director of Summerhouse Drinks, added: “We are very excited to bring Walter Gregor’s Tonic Water to NorthLink Ferries’ passengers.

“The tonic water pairs particularly well with coastal and botanical gins and so is a great match with Rock Rose Gin and Shetland Reel Gin. We very much hope passengers enjoy sampling this truly Scottish cocktail.”

NorthLink Ferries currently offers a number of on board menus prominently featuring local produce as well as an on board shop which stocks a range of gifts, crafts and food and drink items sourced from suppliers based within a 50 mile radius of the ports.
