Shetland botanicals are infused with juniper, coriander and other botanicals, including lime, before being steeped in natural mineral water to release their gentle flavours to give the gin its unique and complex character. Each year, the botanicals are harvested by hand – changing slightly with each harvest due to the quality and quantity available. The distillation is then done in small batches using a traditional copper pot still. Visit www.BlackwoodsGin.co.uk for more information.
