The Reel Shetland Sewing Bee

‘Cast ne’er a clout ere May is out’ which broadly means - Do not change from winter clothes to summer clothes until June, as there is often a sudden cold snap in May.

And some of us are certainly experiencing chilly temperatures at the moment – so we thought that this would be an ideal time to run another ‘gin jacket’ competition.  Some of us have a little more time on our hands, and what better to knit a cover for our beautiful gin bottles, with a fabulous prize!  We ran this in 2017 and were overwhelmed with the creativity and designs that were submitted.

Create your mini accessory to fit our 70cl bottles, fill out the entry form and send it in to us. We will select the best item and its maker to win the grand prize!  All entrants will get a discount voucher for our on-line shop, and be welcome at the distillery for a free tour and tasting, whenever we are able to re-open to visitors.

Good Luck!
