Saxa Vord Distillery
Producers of island-inspired gin and blended malt whisky at the most northerly distillery in the UK
At the very tip of the British isles lie the Shetland Islands, where the North Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. It is a place of mystery and secrets. Of long summer days and long winter nights. Of dramatic weather.
Emerging from this remote community is the Saxa Vord Distillery, the most northerly in the UK, started by four people sharing a passion for producing top-quality products in local communities.
Produced only in Shetland by Shetland's only distillery, Shetland Reel gins are now available throughout the UK and beyond.
Our concept was to make a traditional style gin using many of the botanicals used in the great gins of the past. In our recipes we include juniper berries, coriander seeds, orris root, cinnamon and citrus peel, but add a unique Shetland twist with locally-harvested apple mint and bladderwrack seaweed.
