After the success of our limited edition single malt earlier in the year, we are delighted to release our new blended malt whisky. Bottled in our distillery from four Speyside and one Islay cask strength single malts, they are diluted to 47% ABV with pure Unst water.
The blend 'Batch 1' is a limited edition of 1800 bottles, and is a unique expression, evocative of the Shetland Islands. With notes of sweet dried fruits, spices, wood and windswept with peat, you can almost taste all the elements of this special island.
We were delighted to have VisitScotland chief executive Malcolm Roughead launch our new whisky during a visit to the isles. Here's what he had to say:
“In Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, it is great to see businesses like The Shetland Distillery Company expanding their offering which, in turn, can attract more visitors to the area. The Year of Food & Drink 2015 celebrates the role that food and drink plays in shaping our tourism industry and raises awareness of Shetland’s tourism industry, as well as the provenance of the outstanding local produce on offer. "
Shetland Reel Blended Malt is the perfect special addition to your Christmas drinks cabinet and is now available direct from our online shop.
