The Blackwoods distillery was founded by Caroline Whitfield in 2002, with the aim of building and becoming the first distillery in the Shetland Islands. In 2005 the first 60% and 40% Vintage Dry Gins were released. The gin is made unique by the use of botanicals that are grown and hand-picked during the same year and then selected and used according to the season and climate of the harvest. Each summer, a decision is made on which botanicals to harvest in order to obtain an ever more refined product. Among the herbs cultivated and used in Blackwoods Vintage Dry Gin are Sea Almeria, Water Mint, Filipendula Ulmaria, Angelica and Coriander. These attentions result in a unique product, enriching the finest drinks in an incomparable way. Now the distillery has new premises just outside Glasgow, it has found a great synergy and elective affinity with the Ardgowan distillery and has thus found a way to realise, thanks to new zero impact distillation technologies, the dream of becoming a Carbon Negative company. The new Blackwoods House will be open for visits later this year and the beating heart will be the small distilling machines where limited-edition spirits will be produced with a strong emphasis on seasonal expressions of botanicals. This whole project has been followed and developed together with Master Distiller Sion Edwards, whose signature is clearly visible on the label.
