What our customers say
What a fantastic gin! Ultra smooth.
Most enjoyable taken neat or maybe 1 lump of water!
The juniper kick is so addictive that this has replaced the Islay Malts as my go to dram.
"Up Helly Aa" now instead of "Slainte!"
My favourite Gin. Outright winner for me at the Falkirk Gin Festival earlier in the year. If you love Gin, definitely give the range a try, the reel, Ocean Sent and Up Helly Aa re all fantastic. If you don't like gin, this stuff will convert you!
Wow the UP Helly Aa is the nicest Gin I have ever tasted! My son is into Gin in a big way and we blind test all different Gins with different mixers and different cucumber and fruits. I have discovered I have a real passion for Shetland Reel Gin
