Shetland Distillery, perhaps best known for its award-winning gins, has launched its latest offering, a Finished in Shetland Blended Malt Scotch Whisky. The UK’s most northerly distillery has been distilling a range of gins as well as producing a series of award winning blended expressions of malt whiskies.
This new whisky is the first whisky to have been partly matured in Shetland; spending six months of its life in sherry casks in the distillery in Unst. It will build on the success of previous batches. Batch 1 received a Gold Medal from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Batches 2 and 3 received excellent scores of 92 and 94 respectively from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
