Shetland Distillery, housed on the most northerly outpost of the United Kingdom, was set up by four people sharing a passion for producing top quality products in local communities. Their initial concept was to make a traditional style gin using many of the botanicals used in the great gins of the past, including juniper berries, coriander seeds, orris root, cassia bark and citrus peel, but adding a uniquely Shetland twist.
Shetland Reel Gin is a rather traditional spirit that has taken the best from classic gins but added a modern, Scottish twist. There is a lightness on the nose with juniper, coriander and gentle citrus peel that lead onto a crisp and flavoursome palate. It has light spice and citrus zest. Juniper works closely with mint and is backed by a subtle fruitiness. With a rich mouthfeel, Shetland Reel Gin finishes on an aromatic, herbal note.
