Pernod Ricard has launched a no-age statement expression from its Scapa brand as it ups its focus on the small, fully-manual Orkney distillery.

Scapa Skiren is matured in first-fill American oak casks and is described as having a sweet vanilla taste with tropical fruit. It gets its name from the Old Norse for glittering bright skies.

Pernod opened a visitors centre at the Scapa distillery in May and has recently upped production. The upgrade is part of a new push for the island site, which dates back to 1885 and was taken over by Pernod in 2005 in the acquisition of Allied Domecq. The distillery was mothballed from 1994 to 2004.

Skiren is not the first no-age statement from Pernod this year. In July, the company pulled the 12-, 15- and 18-year old expressions of its Glenlivet single malt from Travel Retail and replaced them with three no-age-statement iterations under the 'Master Distiller's' umbrella.
