Blackwood’s Vintage Dry Gin is made with hand harvested Shetland botanicals. Local crofts harvest our botanicals each summer, roughly between June and September (depending when summer comes and whether it’s warm and dry) in proportions that do not disturb the fragile local habitat. The botanicals used include wild water mint, juniper berries, liquorice and citrus peel.
The plants are brought down to the mainland of Scotland to be gently small-batch distilled. Blackwood’s is truly the essence of Shetland and the world’s only handpicked gin.
