This unique special edition gin celebrates Shetland's world famous Viking fire festival, Up Helly Aa. Aged in ex-whisky casks and bottled on Britain's most northerly isle, Unst, this specially produced Shetland Reel Gin delivers notes of wood and spices to give an extra spark - the perfect spirit to accompany the fiery festivities.
Navy strength 57% (ABV) 100° proof.
On the nose there is a huge amount of fresh juniper followed by a fruit and spice mix. On the palate juniper and then the fruits and spices and a hint of old wood, just like opening up a pirate’s chest upon his return from a long voyage, mmm...
The high strength of the alcohol allows for a good measure of Fever Tree Tonic to lengthen the drink yet not lose the flavour of the gin.
Pour me another!
