You are very unlikely to find any Scapa outside Orkney. The distillery has been
shut down for some years and is in the process of re-commissioning. If you go
to Kirkwall there is still some left in the shops, but you really have to look
for it.

                               Lead us not into temptation; we
                               can find our own way.
