We burned the remains of an old wooden boat stranded on the beach and with the sun setting we started ‘fire spinning’ – magical! Ludically smooth, salty, sweet smoke, imagine a long-exposed photograph having captured all the trails created by the sparks of the spinning poi. Diluted we found ourselves in a mythical story; smoky, salty rice crackers were luring us into the sea where, according to Orcadian folklore, the ‘nuggle’ was awaiting to dive with us deep into the water. At eight years of age we combined selected hogsheads from the same distillery into a variety of different casks to marry. This is one of those casks.
