Tasting Notes

On the nose, the Original Gin has juniper along with notes of mixed spice and citrus. To taste, the gin opens with citrus and spice before a clean and refreshing finish.

The perfect serve

We recommend serving 50ml of the Original Gin over ice, topped with a classic tonic and garnished with a wedge of pink grapefruit and a sprig of mint. A sprig of lavender also makes a great addition.

Meet the maker

Shetland Reel is based at Saxa Vord Distillery at the northern end of Unst, the most northerly inhabited island in the UK. It is closer to Norway in distance and in culture than it is to much of Scotland. Unst is a place of mystery and secrets. Of long summer days and long winter nights. Of dramatic weather. Saxa Vord is the most northerly distillery in the UK and was started four people sharing a passion for producing top quality products in local communities. Their goal is to build the most northerly Scotch whisky distillery and create the finest expressions of whisky and gin that reflect the local landscape in the distillery on Unst.
