Blackwoods story begins with this hand crafted 40% vintage gin. Inspired by the beautiful nature of Shetland, they wait each year for the right weather conditions to harvest their botanicals. With each vintage the botanicals used change slightly due to the quality and quantity available. Blackwoods 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 their vintage gin has won gold medals and been judged by experts, across the world beating many well-known brands in the process.
