The story goes that Blackwood’s Gin is made using home-grown resources from Shetland. There’s one snag: as small islands are vulnerable to changes in vegetation they can’t guarantee a consistent taste year-on-year, so each year is a ‘vintage gin’. The people behind the gin say that local crofters harvest the botanicals each summer - they are laid out on perforated trays while the gin is triple distilled through vapour infusion in a small copper still. As Shetland sits on the 60 degree north line of latitude, the team were inspired to produce Blackwood's 60 - a 60% ABV gin. Each vintage is produced in very limited quantities - a total of 22,000, the same as the population of Shetland. The team claims the flavour is determined by the availability of the hand-picked botanicals.
