Shetland Reel is based on the island of Unst, the most northerly inhabited island in Shetland, with a population of around 700. The distillery has a tasting room, open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 1130 to 1230, by appointment only. Their original gin — first distilled in 2015 — features botanics, including traditional flavours such as juniper berries and coriander seeds, but also utilises locally grown apple mint. Their Reel Ocean Sent Gin was awarded a silver medal at the San Fransisco World Spirit Competition, and features bladderwrack seaweed as a botanic.
