8 Doors Distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Region

Highlands


Owner

Kerry and Derek Campbell


Founded

2020 | Kerry and Derek Campbell


8 Doors distillery is located in the iconic Caithness village of John O’Groats, and as such is now Scotland’s most northerly mainland distillery. John O’Groats takes its name from Jan de Groot, a Dutchman who is believed to have operated a ferry service to Orkney during the late 15th or early 16th centuries. He built an octagonal house with eight doors and an eight-sided table to avoid arguments over precedence between himself and his seven sons. Hence, 8 Doors distillery. The venture is headed up by local couple Derek and Kerry Campbell, and the first spirit flowed from 8 Doors’ pair of stills in September 2022.
