Shetland Reel in <100 Words
From the only distillery in the romantic, subarctic Shetland Islands (closer to Bergen than to London), Shetland Reel Gin is a small-batch gin distilled on a copper still on the Island of Unst. Featuring a traditional bouquet including juniper, coriander, orris root, cassia, and citrus peel, they add some local Unst-grown Apple Mint. Apple Mint at its core is still mint, but it has a somewhat fruity flavor. Apple Mint is also favored by many bartenders for Mojitos. But I digress, did you know Shetland Reel is among the only gins I know who have a song writ about them*?
