Dry Vintage Gin from Blackwood

Lerwick-based Blackwood Distillers has launched its 2005 Dry Vintage Gin, for which it grows and hand-harvests many of the botanicals on the storm-ravished Shetland Islands that are its homeland. The unpredictable weather means that, each year, the distilled botanicals produce a unique and distinctive gin. The 2005 vintage is made up of floral and herby undertones, as the damp, cooler summer produced masses of wild water mint, meadowsweet and angelica. Blackwood distilled these wild flowers and herbs with fresh, locally grown coriander to produce a gin which it says has a subtle coriander pungency, tempered with an aroma of herbs and flowers.
