It has been three years to the day that the first Original gin came off of our still at Saxa Vord. Since then you have seen us create Ocean Sent, Simmer Gin, Up Helly Aa limited editions and a few others for future use, not to mention our award winning Blended Malt Whisky! 

We have been delighted with the reception that each gin and whisky has received and are proud to see it exported to over seven countries around the world. As a result of recent trips to Germany we anticipate this number to expand along with greater coverage in Germany itself thanks to new partnerships, they obviously know a good gin when they taste one! 

Director Stuart Nickerson reflects ''In three years we have developed three core gins as well as limited edition gins and a blended malt Scotch whisky, we have exported to Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and have recently rebranded our gins, all from a very small distillery 60 degrees North. What a story, what a journey it has been fantastic to be a part of it and thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way including all our customers and those who love our products''. 

After three years it seems right that we are now making some leaps and bounds with developing and refining our brand. We are very excited to announce that the new look bottles are packed and ready to be dispatched from the distillery tomorrow! If you pre-ordered your bottle you should be seeing it arrive shortly (weather dependant). Don't worry if you haven't ordered yet, we've got the stock ready and waiting. You can order your bottle HERE.

Looking forwards we have some big developments and we're sure a lot of you will be excited to hear the 2018 navy strength Up Helly Aa edition is currently in the development process! 

Thanks for your support over the last three years, 

We hope you'll be raising a G&T this evening alongside us!

                                                    The first Up Helly Aa release, a good time was had by all! 

   Filming The Island Parish as we went out foraging for seaweed, it was a great hit and brought lots of new visitors to Unst

 

                                                          Three magical summers on Unst and one Simmer Gin! 

                                                                        A new cocktail for a new bottle!
