Kirkness & Gorie

Our family has been in business in the same spot in the heart of Kirkwall for over 160 years.  It all started in 1859, when James Kirkness opened a grocer’s and wine merchant at No 15 Broad Street.  His daughter Margaret married John Gorie, and the shop has been known as Kirkness & Gorie ever since.  It sells a wide selection of local and imported produce: whisky, gin, beer, farm cheese, oatcakes and much more from Orkney, and a huge selection of wines, olives and continental cheeses from across Europe.  Visit the Kirkness & Gorie website and discover their range of high quality produce, and find details of events, offers, and other services.
