Saxa Vord Distillery - Unst, Shetland
Where the North Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean, you will find the furthest North inhabited island of the British Isles, Unst. Here you find Shetland Reel Gin and the Saxa Vord Distillery. It's so far up there its closer to Norway then the majority of Scotland. With Shetland being such a culturally rich island Saxa Vord draws inspiration from this and the land that they are on incorporating local botanicals and providing their taste interpretation of the land.
The nose has traditional juniper with subtle hints of salt and spice. The palate holds traditional London dry juniper but with a complex twist of saltiness and warmth. The finish is long and brings you right to the crashing ocean!
Serve with a slice of pink grapefruit
