Orkney Sets The Record?

By Nick Morrison

Wednesday night saw the last presentation of this years Orkney International Science Festival, appropriately enough on the influence of yeast strains on Whisky flavours.

This year’s Festival has to have set a record for the most global Zooms ever.

Not only did we have presentations from multiple locations in the British Isles, Nordic countries on mainland Europe, but also The Faroes, Canada, Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic, Caribbean islands and Pacific Islands off the coast of South America as well!

A truly global performance.  All presenters paid tribute to the support staff who made it happen. Orkney certainly was punching above its weight in the last few days.
