Blackwood's 60 is a limited edition 60% abv vintage dry gin with only a few bottles made each year to a total of 22,000, the same as the population of Shetland.

Attracting the true gin connoisseur who seeks the best gin experience possible either with tonic or in special cocktails.

An exceptionally smooth and delicate flavour ideal for a range of gin based cocktails.

Blackwoods 60 includes botanicals from Shetland including coriander, wild water mint, angelica root strain, introduced by the Viking settlers and sea pink flowers from the cliff tops and meadowsweet flowers.

These botanicals are the best, first-flush pickings of the season making up the first batch of each year and whose spirit base is barley, unusual for gin, echoing Scotland's whisky heritage.

I was introduced to this the other day. It really is an outstanding gin. Well worth the premium price.

This is undoubtedly the nicest Gin I have ever tasted to date. I will carry on searching for a Gin as good, if not better, but until then this is beautiful to drink straight or with tonic.

This gin has an outstanding quality. You will taste the soil and its herbs, you will smell the sea. A drink containing this gin is like a day at the sea.
