OUR LIMITED EDITION UHA 2020 GIN IS AVAILABLE TO BUY NOW
Due to a high demand for this years limited edition gin, we've decided to launch it a little earlier than we intended...
To create this year's edition, we've matured our award winning Ocean Sent gin in Oloroso Sherry casks for up to three months, allowing the lovely sweetness of the cask to shine through on the finish.
Up Helly Aa 2020 is the 5th expression in the Up Helly Aa series, celebrating the annual Fire Festival in Lerwick.

What can you expect from our 2020 expression?
At a lower % than previous years this gin shows pine, citrus, juniper and vanilla on the nose with delicate oak richness.
The palate has backbone of juniper throughout, the sweetness of vanilla and dried apricot flavours of the sherry cask come through leading to the salty freshness of the bladderwrack.
Woody oak flavours make the finish very long.
The lower abv % really opens this gin up a lot, it allows the sweetness of the cask to really show through without having such a heavy juniper kick to contend with.
