A top quality gin made using botanicals from Shetland, including Wild Water Mint, Meadowsweet and Sea Pink flowers. Blackwood's is also unusual in that is released with a vintage statement for each small batch distilled.
Tasted once in Doroch Castle. Found to be be very smooth, similar to an other well known brand, but much lighter & with more flavour. July 12

I discovered Blackwood's gin whilst living in South Africa. It was the fraction of the price of that charged in the U K, but the best i have ever tasted. The range of botanicals found on the Shetlands give it a most unique flavour. The 60% is something special. I fully recommend this gin to all my friends and would not buy any other. Once tasted you are hooked!

my favored gin. perfect long with a Jamaican ginger beer, fresh lime over half crushed ice. high quality ingredients make all the difference and I order Blackwood's especially - one superior gin.

This is extremely smooth and 'herby' with no bitterness. I drink it at room temp, neat in same way as whisky. It is a favourite of mine.In my view it is wasted in a tonic...

Great Gin served neat on ice or with tonic. Will go out of our way to buy this brand!
