Appearance : Clear, Transparent
Aroma : Clean zeasty nose with orange zeast competing with piny juniper for attention.
Taste : Honest, Classic old school juniper led london dry gin palate but with zingy orange zest setting above candied zinger, lemon and sage.
Aftertaste: Hibiscucs flaover are more obivious in the long levender black pepper and pine finish.
Appearance: Crystal clear.
Aroma: Laveder bouquet of original Beefeater is replaced by floral aromas, particuarly hibiscus with berry notes also evident.
Taste: Less citrussy than is usual for Beefeater with superbly intergrated flavours which present as a unified force making it hard to distinquish the individual contributions of the elderflower, hibiscus and blackcurrant that set this gin apart from original Beefeater.
Aftertaste: Blackberry emerges in a reassuringly predominant pine-ey juniper finish. A master class in gin formulation by Desmond Payne.

Blackwoods Dry Gin – the world’s first vintage gin.
Our story begins with this hand crafted 40% vintage gin. Inspired by the beautiful nature of Shetland, we wait each year for the right weather conditions to harvest our botanicals. With each vintage the botanicals used change slightly due to the quality and quantity available. Our Shetland botanicals are infused with juniper and coriander, plus other botanicals including lime, to give our dry gin its unique and complex flavour. We steep the botanicals in natural mineral water to release their gentle flavours before we go on to distillation in small batches using a traditional copper still. Over the years our vintage gin has won gold medals and been judged by experts, across the world beating many well-known brands in the process.
Tasting note:An abundance of citrus on the nose with gentle floral notes to follow. Extremely smooth yet crisp with citrus, herbal and floral notes coming through on the palate.
