Blackwoods Vintage Dry Gin was created with professional mixologists in mind, hence its hefty ABV of 60%. The strength of this super smooth gin was also influenced by the location of the Shetland Isles where Blackwoods is made, which sits on the 60 ° north line of latitude. Every batch of this gin is ever so subtly different dependent on the availability of the hand picked botanicals that grow wild on the island.
The batches of this highly sought after gin are always small as befits the rugged nature of the islands; only 400 species of plants can thrive here in the windy and often wet conditions of this coastal paradise. The untamed beauty of this place combines with ancient distillation methods that have been practiced in Scotland for many centuries.
Blackwoods Vintage Gin has a strong citrus nose with subtle floral notes. The floral character comes to the fore on the palate and winds up with an exceptionally smooth finish.
