Tasting Notes

The nose opens with strong juniper followed by sweet orange. On the palate the juniper is reduced and it becomes sweet, very sweet orange and liquorice with a lingering finish.

The perfect serve

We recommend serving 50ml of the Simmer Gin over ice, topped with a premium tonic and garnished with a slice of orange and sprig of rosemary.

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.
