Shetland Reel Ocean Scent Gin
This product is currently sold out.
So this is interesting. This is a special edition of Shetland Reel Gin, made on the Sheltand island of Unst, and the interesting part is they use seaweed as one of the botanicals! Harvested locally, they wash it and dry it before distilling it along side some of their regular botanicals which include juniper, coriander seed, orris root, cassia bark, citrus peel and apple mint - all grown on the island. Ocean Sent is also bottled at a mouth warming 49%! When you open the bottle you immediately notice the heavy juniper and sea salt. Wait a while and you'll also be able to pick out a coriander spice. The taste is classic dry juniper and typical gin spices but then there is this coastal saltiness that is phenomenal. We've never had anything like it before. The finish is all about that fresh sea air. It's wonderful. Definitely a sipping gin. Don't be spoiling this one with a tonic!
