SHETLAND REEL GIN

Founded in 2014
Shetland Reel Gin is produced by The Shetland Distillery Company on the island of Unst; the most northerly inhabited island in the British Isles.

Inspired by the surroundings, the Founders developed a couple of Gin recipes (Original Recipe and Ocean Sent), both featuring a number of traditional Gin botanicals, and adding a Shetland Twist.

The Original Recipe Gin features juniper berries, coriander seeds, orris root, cassia bark and citrus peel, as well as apple mint, which is grown and harvested on the island. It features plenty of juniper to taste, so fans of traditional Gins with love it, but the mint really adds an extra layer.

The Ocean Sent Gin features the addition of bladderwrack seaweed, which is native to the Shetland coastline. Both recipes are made in very small batches – in fact, the size of the still makes The Shetland Distillery Company one of the smallest commercial distilleries in the world.
