The Shetland Distillery Company was created by four people sharing a passion for producing top quality products in local communities.
Over the past 12 years, Frank and Debbie Strang have regenerated the former RAF site at Saxa Vord, Unst into an award-winning tourist resort with year round self-catering accommodation, seasonal hostel and bar/restaurant.
Stuart and Wilma Nickerson own and operate The Malt Whisky Company which releases its own range of independently bottled single cask, single malt Scotch whiskies. Stuart has worked in the Scotch whisky industry since 1979, managing several of the most well-known distilleries.
There is a shared desire to build not only the most northerly Scotch whisky distillery and the most northern gin distillery in the UK but to also create the finest expressions of these two products, in the distillery on Unst.
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.
Our distillery is located at the northern end of Unst, the most northerly inhabited island in the UK, only accessible from the Shetland mainland by two ferry journeys, via the island of Yell. It is closer to Norway in distance and in culture than it is to much of Scotland.
The exclusive blended malt Scotch whisky is bottled only at Saxa Vord distillery on the island of Unst in the Shetland Islands. With notes of sweet dried fruits, spices, wood and wind swept with peat, you can almost taste all the elements of the special environment of this remote island.
