About Skull Splitter by The Orkney Brewery

Skull Splitter is one of Orkney's strongest beers, named after Thorfinn Einarsson the 7th Viking Earl of Orkney.

It is a sophisticated, satiny smooth and full flavoured beer. It has a rich fruity wine-like complexity with flavours of fresh and dried fruits, warm exotic spice and mellow summer fruity notes.


The tranquil Orkney Islands, with their fertile farming lands and fishing grounds, have been inhabited for over 5000 years. The Orkney brewery is housed in the former schoolhouse in Quoyloo one mile from Skara Brae in the heart of Neolithic Orkney.
