In addition to our standard bottlings, we like to use our imagination to make some rather special spirits. Here you will find details of our limited edition gins, born from ideas and crafted into unique spirits for you to savour.

You may still find some of these available in our online shop, but if not you can always check your nearest stockist to see if there are any available. For all the latest news on our new releases, make sure you keep up to date via our Facebook, Twitter and Newsletter.

Shetland Reel Up Helly Aa Gin - January 2018

AVAILABLE NOW

Navy strength 57% (ABV) 100° proof.

A new limited edition recipe for 2018! This unique special edition gin celebrates Shetland's world famous Viking fire festival, Up Helly Aa. We have taken our award-winning Ocean Sent gin and aged it in an ex-sherry and whisky cask resulting in a clean fresh gin with sweet notes from the sherry and whisky.

Tasting Notes: Juniper led nose with a slight sweetness from the cask. Citrus peel and sweetness from the sherry come through at first then balanced by tannins from the wood and savoury notes from the gin. Perfect for sipping neat or mixed with fever tree tonic or Ginger ale with a twist of grapefruit peel.

Shetland Reel Up Helly Aa Gin - January 2017

AVAILABLE NOW

Navy strength 57% (ABV) 100° proof.

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.

Tasting Notes: 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 viking's chest upon his return from a long voyage. 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.
