Blackwoods Vintage Dry Gin

Blackwoods Vintage Dry Gin

70cl | 40% ABV | Scotland

With meadowsweet, cowslip, wild thyme and eyebright in the botanical line up, Blackwoods Vintage Gin reflects the flavours of the Scottish Highlands in its natural state. Crisp pine, sweet flowers and juicy citrus prevail.

Blackwoods Vintage Gin is a gin with real duality, coming in really hard with a herbal juniper assault, before fading and giving way to lighter, floral botanicals. We love it with a mint sprig as a garnish come G&T time.

Key Flavours

Crisp & Clean
"The four Shetland botanicals are the draw here - meadowsweet (sweet floral), wild thyme (herbal), cowslip and eye bright (mellow flowers) give distinctly different top notes and help make Blackwoods Gin unique."

About this product

After harvesting Shetland’s botanicals, the Blackwoods team, working on a recipe created alongside selected bartenders, distil their Vintage Gin to a London Dry method.

Blackwoods Gin is contract made in Birmingham, with some of the ingredients coming from the Shetlands, while others are imported from around the world.

Blackwoods embraces vintner terminology, so vintage applies to the year in which each gin has been made, with the botanicals they’ve harvested reflecting the year’s climate conditions. Expect fleeting flavour variations year on year.

"At 60% ABV, it's boozy but look past that and there are some really subtle lingering floral highlights showing at the end, showcasing the best elements of the unusual and multifaceted botanicals they are using."
