Shetland gin is the reel thing


A NEW Scottish gin has been launched by what’s claimed to be Britain’s most northerly distillery.

Shetland Reel Gin is made with botanicals, including apple-mint, which is grown on the island of Unst.
The distillery is located on the former RAF Saxa Vord site and is operated by The Shetland Distillery Company – a partnership between Scotch whisky industry specialist Stuart Nickerson and his wife Wilma (left) and Saxa Vord owners Frank and Debbie Strang (right).
