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.
Together this group of four individuals selected the most northerly Scotch whisky distillery in the UK (the Saxa Vord distillery on the mostly uninhabited island of Unst) to create the finest expressions - both whisky and Shetland gin.
Nose: Peat but not iodine, something softer with notes of butter, vanilla and at the back toffee cooking on the stove.
Palate: The first sensation is sweet dried fruits, dark fudge, dates and raisins, with peat and then black peppers.
Finish: Long with the dried fruits, peat and peppers all lingering and warming.

I had hoped for notes of kelp and brine which I would associate with Shetland.
