We make Blackwood's Vintage Dry Gin with hand-harvested Shetland botanicals.
Local crofters harvest our Shetland botanicals each summer, roughly between June and September (depends when summer comes, and whether it's warm and dry) in proportions that do not disturb the fragile local habitat.
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..
Blackwood’s Vintage Dry Gin is triple-distilled for smoothness and is subtly infused with locally harvested wild botanicals which compliment the other classic ingredients to achieve the creation of a singularly iconic gin.Dependant on weather conditions and seasonal climate the quantity of these wild botanicals vary from year to year giving each “Vintage" distillation its own unique flavour signature.
