Our story begins with this hand crafted 40% vintage gin. Inspired by the beautiful nature of Shetland, we wait each year for the right weather conditions to harvest our botanicals. With each vintage the botanicals used change slightly due to the quality and quantity available. Our Shetland botanicals are infused with juniper and coriander, plus other botanicals including lime, to give our dry gin its unique and complex flavour. We steep the botanicals in natural mineral water to release their gentle flavours before we go on to distillation in small batches using a traditional copper still. Over the years our vintage gin has won gold medals and been judged by experts, across the world beating many well-known brands in the process.
Clear in colour. The nose shows lemon sweets, light juniper, lemon zest, fresh mint and a lovely citrusy sweetness. The palate is old fashioned lemonade or barley water. Very sweet with tree bark perhaps. The finish is more of that alluring sweetness with a refreshing lemon/lime combination.
