Inspired by the Shetland Space Centre, Countdown Gin has landed in the Shetland Reel collection for the next 12 months as Unst counts down to Shetland’s first satellite launch in May 2022.
The gin has been produced with a touch of stardust and the right blend of rocket fuel to help you reach your orbit.
If you like our original gin, you’ll love this. It’s packed with more of everything that makes our original so great - including the locally harvested apple mint botanical
For a Countdown Gin serve that’s out of this world, mix a double measure with Fever-tree’s Premium Indian Tonic Water and a wedge of Pink Grapefruit.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also try it with a slice of kiwi. A more traditional orange peel works too.
Nose: Lots of juniper and citrus which makes the gin very appealing.
Taste: Juniper up front, followed by the citrus and then the coriander seed at the end, very clean and fresh but also really full of flavour – punchy!
